#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

#101 – “Crushed By Dust” (2011)


L.K.: Oh god, I forgot how much I hate this. This is a total non-song. This makes me long for the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse theme song.

#9 – “Pirate Girls Nine” (2008)

Here Come The 123s

A.S.: Well, I swear this is a total coincidence that this is the ninth song in the mix. L.K.: As I mentioned during the previous Here Come The 123s song we reviewed, I hate anything with a bunch of kids shouting vocals, especially if they’re just counting, I mean, I don’t know, it just seems lazy. A.S.: There … Continue reading
