#103 – “I Can Add” (2008)

Here Come The 123s

A.S.: I feel like since “Ten Mississippi” the shuffle has shown us pity with regard to children’s songs, although that could only last for so long. L.K.: Oh John Flansburgh, what went wrong with you in 2008? What went so horribly, horribly wrong? A.S.: Yes, a friendly reminder: as much as we love John Flansburgh, we feel that … Continue reading

#57 – “Ten Mississippi” (2008)

Here Come The 123s

A.S.: There … Continue reading
