My Earworms, Let Me Share Them

One of the guys in the office has the Flight of the Conchords CD on his iTunes and he recommended that I check it out. I did, and now I can't get rid of it. If you're not familiar with the Flight of the Conchords, they are Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement, a Grammy Award-winning New Zealand comedy duo who bill themselves as "Formerly New Zealand's fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo."

According to Wikipedia, "the group uses a combination of witty observation, characterisation and acoustic folk guitars, modelled loosely on the 1960s U.S. duo The Smothers Brothers." Last year, the duo got it's own show on HBO, which is currently on season 2. I haven't seen the show yet, but I hear it's pretty funny. Anyway, the songs are good, but infectious (Nathan, you might want to stay away). Needless to say, their damn songs have been in my head all week, and I'm hoping that by sharing my earworms, then maybe they will leave me alone for a while.

Be warned, these songs are catchy, especially if you listen a couple times, which you might be inclined to do because they're also pretty funny.

These guys are funny. I watched the hiphopotamus a day ago, couldn't stop until I watched all they had on the utube.

Hee! Very funny. I love the lines about making cheaper sneakers with child labor in the third one.

I've seen the advertisements for them on Comedy Central. They had a funny song about girls "checking out their junk" "in their trunks". Funny!
