Is MC Hammer ready for some football?

There’s a new commercial for Monday Night Football on ESPN with MC Hammer, and I sure do get a kick out of it. I’ve discussed in other posts the usage of MC Hammer’s songs in commercials, but this one’s different. For one thing, MC Hammer actually appears as himself. For another, well, I won’t ruin…

This misheard lyric comes from an early episode of Friends. Phoebe is talking about the song by Elton John about Tony Danza, and starts singing, “Hold me closer, Tony Danza“. I don’t think anyone had the heart to tell her it was “Hold me closer, tiny dancer“. But I like her version better. The song…

We used to…

Probably the best parts of Forgetting Sarah Marshall came from British comedian and actor, Russell Brand. In the movie, Brand played Sarah Marshall’s (Kristen Bell‘s) new boyfriend Aldous Snow, lead singer of the (fictional) band Infant Sorrow.

If you fell out a window

This is perhaps one of the most insensitive songspeaks in Matt’s and my history together, but I feel it’s a songspeak that must be told. Some may remember that in 1991, Eric Clapton suffered the tragic loss of his son when his son fell out the window of a 53rd floor apartment. I’ll start out…
