Sunday Serenade: First Of May

I’m a little bit late with this one. Sue me.

Jonathan Coulton is a great indie singer/songwriter. He’s mostly known among the geeknoceti for songs such as re: Your Brains and Codemonkey.

With spring well upon us and the warmer weather finally setting up camp for the long visit that is summer in the south, I thought it was time to help celebrate a little bit of that.

With that, let’s all settle back and listen to Coulton’s First of May, a decidedly not-safe-for-work song that celebrates the coming of spring. If you know what I mean?

Nudge, nudge. Wink, wink. A nod’s as good as a wink to a blind bat, eh?

Sunday Serenade: Jimmy Buffett

I’m torn.

Torn between the two (if I did finger-dipping air quotes, I’d do them here) holidays that fall together today.

I’ll not actually be getting into either.

Instead, I’m going in a third direction.

Herewith, presented entirely without comment is the great dude and better singer Jimmy Buffett, presenting one of his outstanding salutes to the perfect night out.

Sunday Serenade: My Boyfriend’s Back

Well, not my boyfriend, understand.

Just, you know, in general.

Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Look, we’ve just escaped from Valentine’s Day (well, most of you, I guess. Lucky dudes.) and I thought I’d celebrate with the original song that tells the story of a woman, unfairly spurned, who takes her revenge by sicing a bigger kid on a smaller kid and saying kill.

“My boyfriend’s back and he’s gonna save my reputation.”

Yeah, because nothing says that your girl is pure, chaste and true than whipping ass on some random dude.

Man, the 50’s were a strange place. Am I right?

Anyway, it’s a short song by The Angels.
