she liked Imaginary Men best of all

This is where we break it down – ooh!


This is by far, my favorite Flight of the Conchords song, Think About It:

They’re turning kids into slaves / just to make cheaper sneakers / But what’s the real cost? / ’cause the sneakers don’t seem that much cheaper / Why are we still paying so much for sneakers / when you got them made by little slave kids / what are your overheads?

  1. Love them! I love the line about the monkeys with dieases, and leave these poor monkeys alone. Agree with all above comments, and gotta chime in with another couple favs: Lady’s of the World “bolivian, presbyterian, amphibian…” and “lady man lady – even you must be into you!”. Hiphopopotomus: “my lyrics are bottomless….”. Also Sugalumps is a riot.

  2. Just seeing Bret in the safety vest cracks me up. Also, love “If Your Into It.”

  3. WOW! Sometimes I really do think you and I share a media brain! 🙂 This show has (sadly) been off the air for about a year now. And, all of the sudden, for whatever reason, I couldn’t get THIS song out of my head, today:

  4. I love Flight of the Conchords!! I’ve only seen a few episodes but it’s so great!!!

  5. This and Business Time are my favs! Oh and Inner City Pressure for their Pet Shop Boys tribute!

    You know I realised the other day, on Mutha ‘Uckers they sound just like Falco from ‘Rock Me Amadeus’ fame!!! I am sure he was one of their influences for that one.
