“Star Wars What is it Good For”
On this episode of Best Song Ever the Dear LaBenne Cousins celebrate May the 4th Be With You by playing all Star Wars themed songs! (not really) They discuss Michelle Wolff’s White House Correspondent’s Dinner speech as well as the new Kanye West songs. Brian realizes he has to get better about having his expectations challenged, or as Luke puts it, checking his perspec. They also talk about Future’s verse on the Black Panther soundtrack and have a surprise visit from Loki the trickster, launching them into a new episode of Thor Talk all while they play the eight best songs you’ll hear all week!
Every week Ghettoblaster feature writers (and dear cousins!) Brian LaBenne and Luke LaBenne bring you fresh new songs with the hopes of introducing you to some that you may consider to be the best song ever. Both Brian and Luke have no idea what songs the other has picked, so what you are hearing is their genuine reaction to listening to the songs together.
