My English friend Julia, who’s trapped in Australia, recently had this song stuck in her head. It’s been plaguing me for weeks, too. “Carol Brown just took a bus out of town, but I’m hoping that you’ll stick around.” Flight of the Conchords‘ song “Carol Brown” is a modern “50 Ways To Leave Your Lover“, except it’s happening to you & it’s a little sad, though it’s also funny and a bit hopeful. Good for therapy. Jemaine bemoans the different ways women have left him and those exes form a choir to explore his issues.
It’s one of my favorite songs of 2009 (I’m totally making a list of favorite songs from ’09, so stay tuned). Unfortunately, Flight of the Conchords (from New Zealand) won’t do any more seasons of their music comedy show on HBO. So sad. Both seasons are available on DVD, but you can’t borrow mine. Hopefully they do some awesome movies, possibly based around “Prince of Parties” (please please). (Oh, and I’ve had 70,000 page hits to this blog since I started last February! Yippy. Thanks for reading.) This video goes out to my friend Julia, my bro Jay (who’s also a big fan of FotC), and the choir of exes in my head that won’t shut up and who I still mindlessly obsess about sometimes. Dangit.
