The One Where Luke is Adopted

On this episode of Best Song Ever: Luke gives motivational tips so you can Live Like Luke #LLL, Brian talks about the Bachelor much to Luke’s chagrin, Luke presents Lil Luke’s Complaint Sesh in defense of La La Land #LLL, the dear LaBenne cousins play everybody’s favorite game show #traintrackbaby, and Luke plays our first country song!  It’s a weird and wild ride with a truly fantastic soundtrack.

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.  Also, if you enjoy this episode, head to ITunes to subscribe and rate our podcast with the highest rating available to you.
