“Women Can Be Possums Too”

On this episode of Best Song Ever: the Dear LaBenne cousins talk about the Super Bowl, Justin Timberlake and Luke’s recent Prince obsession, Luke gets bored by Football Talk but Brian doesn’t care and talks a lot about Nick Foles.  Luke goes on to complain about the Comedy Central app even though it helped him discover a new song.  They discuss playing ultimate Frisbee while painting, get down to the importance of Checking Your Perspec, Luke attempts to end the War of Duets and they remember iconic singer/songwriter Jason Molina all while playing 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.  Also, if you enjoy this episode, head to ITunes to subscribe and rate our podcast with the highest rating available to you.
