The One With Awkward Boys and Punk Girls
This week on Best Song Ever Luke and Brian kick 2017 off in style with a song about dreading the upcoming year. They talk about channeling your inner Julia Stiles, the Kirk Cameron classic film “Fireproof,” engage in another episode of Thor Talk and also introduce Tech Talk. Of course, the music is always great and this episode may feature the strongest batch of songs yet.
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.
