Well that’s it for this week. Next week’s show will be starting late, so prepare yourself for less insanity by listening to Mika. Or the Kaiser Chiefs or whatever causes you to go crazy. Until then, don’t panic.

*This is from the concert video Stop Making Sense which was my first introduction to the idea of a tiny, tiny man in a really big suit. Enjoy
**In this same recording session, Lily Allen pretended to be a cat. It was great.
***As you can tell, this is not the version by the Wombats. I just like messing with your heads and I like Leona Lewis’ version just as well.
****The bassist for this band was on Never Mind the Buzzcocks last week and talked a lot more than I thought he would. However he didn’t know the lyrics to his own band’s song.
******Turned out I had more time than I thought, so I unofficially played another song. Here’s the link to the “official” video of Mika performing “Billy Brown.”
