#111 – “D & W” (2005)

Here Come The ABCs

A.S.: “I like to watch the sports.” L.K.: This isn’t going to win any songwriting awards, but damn is it cute. A.S.: John Linnell in a dialogue with himself. Can’t go too wrong with that premise. L.K.: He’s got a secret desire to be a voice actor, I’m telling you. At least he can do amusing accents. The D puppet from the video is … Continue reading

#67 – “Goodnight My Friends” (2005)

Here Come The ABCs

L.K.: Another tiny song, oh boy. A.S.: Another tiny Here Come the ABCs song. L.K.: Yeah, what a weird coincidence. A.S.: Get ’em out of the way.

L.K.: You know, this might be the kids song that has wound up being played in more “adult” shows than any other. A.S.: I think “Clap Your Hands” might be the only one that’s been played more. L.K.: Similar to “Clap Your Hands”, different sections of the fanbase seem to have pretty different opinions about this song, and … Continue reading

#27 – “Flying V” (2005)

Here Come The ABCs

[YouTube video tagged as “back to school cool grammy genius lonnie mack albert king geese,” among other things.] L.K.: MORE KIDS MUSIC. A.S.: BUT GOOD STUFF. L.K.: YOU KEEP ACTING LIKE YESTERDAY’S SONG WAS THE WORST THING IN THE WORLD. A.S.: What I just said has nothing do with “Lazyhead and Sleepybones”. It has to do with the fact that there are … Continue reading
