On this episode of Best Song Ever the dear, dear LaBenne cousins dive deep into the Rednex classic Cotton Eyed Joe and try to avoid having a week long dance party with only that song as their punishment. Brian talks about how he normally doesn’t have memories but how certain songs can break through and conjure up a memory and Luke talks about his resting bitchface. They discuss evil sins and living like someone is always watching, like God. They also get into blood harmonies, breakups, Lebron James and the Lakers 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.
