I came down to my desk to work and blare The best non-Steinman album ever. (I saw someone on Sunday who is from Ashtabula, Ohio and ever since then I’ve had various lines rolling through my head) .
That doesn’t explain why I’ve spent the last 20 minutes over on YouTube listening to Eric Cartman’s cover of Poker Face.
It makes me laugh and dance at the same time, and that’s my favourite state of being really. You can’t grow up to Safety Dance without enjoying the sensation.
So, yes. Tangled Up In Blue is and always will be the single best love song ever written. But Cartman just throws down the jams.
(Is this where I thought I’d be at 40? No. It is not.)
UPDATE: You can download a free MP3 of Cartman’s Poker Face here.
