Most music are very serious, even if it’s just some generic pop song. Okay, maybe not ‘serious’ in the same way that emo and punk music are. But they are serious in a ‘grumpy’ serious way, their topic is something serious and kind of “F you world”. So even though every random pop song is essentially about love it’s really serious business. Because it’s a expensive business to write and produce a pop song nowadays.
So it’s very refreshing to listening to ‘comedy music’. They always somehow manages to be super topical and very personal, along with a very catchy tune. They’re just hits the head right on the nail.
But how did I come onto this whole path right now? Well, the last days I have not been feeling very good leading to a massive lack of energy aka laying in bed crying while I feel completely useless. It’s an endless, very bad circle since it makes me feel even worse -> less energy -> haven’t the energy to do anything productive (and repeat).
The most energy I’ve managed to muster is to watch videos on YouTube, and most happen to be crack videos. Avengers and Marvel crack videos… The quick pace of them just really manages to be interesting and sometimes even makes me smile (it’s a big thing when dealing with depression). Okay, now I’m getting a little bit out of topic so if you’re still reading this that’s amazing. No really, you just managed to read all of my random writing.
Anyways, in these type of videos some songs always reappear, and often they are comedy songs.
So with watching a whole bunch of Avengers videos one song I’ve come across is “You, Me and Steve“. This lead me to do some more research which introduced me to comedy music duo Garfunkel & Oates. Their songs are awesome! No really, I’m listening to them right now while writing this. Just listening to their songs make me feel kind of happy and a little bit easy at mind, even if it won’t last for long. It’s just so nice to get a chance to relax a little.
Which is your favorite comedy song? Are you like me and thought that “You just had sex” was a real, serious song (which actually says more about todays popular music than my music knowledge)?
