Let’s Get Stupid

21 Feb

Funky Chicken – Rufus Thomas
This entire mix began with one song: “The Funky Chicken.” It’s hard not to watch Rufus Thomas perform this song at Wattstax without smiling.

Disco Inferno – The Bobs
Along with Petra Haden, The Bobs are pretty much the only excusable post-collegiate acapella.

Tripper Trouble – DJ BC
Mashups are inherently goofy, which is why I probably included three on this mix. A full album of Beatles/Beastie Boys mashups can be overwhelming. One, though, can be sublime.

Broadway – Toots and The Maytals
I don’t know if I would describe Toots and the Maytals necessarily as “goofballs.” More so “joyous.”

We Will Jump You – Party Ben
Another mashup, heard at just about every Bootie.

Woo Hoo – Five Six Seven Eights
Just under two minutes of silliness.

Lust for My Adidas – DJ Moule
Another great mashup from France’s DJ Moule.

I Missed The Bus – Skankin’ Pickle
Any song with a chorus of “I Love Threes Company” deserves a place in the goofball pantheon.

Oh Boy – Lawsuit
Listening to Lawsuit brings me a combination of joy and sadness.

The Sign – The Mountain Goats
This song begins with Peter Hughes stating “I never tire of this song.” I’ve got to agree, at least when referring to The Mountain Goats version of the song.

    That was hella fun. And didn’t know you knew Lawsuit – don’t know many other folks that do. Loved loved loved them.
