The Lonely Island – Incredibad

The boys behind Lonely Island; Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer, and Jorma Taccone, are brilliant.  There, I said it.  They’re quite honestly the best part of SNL in the current season {probably the best parts ever since Tina Fey and Jimmy Fallon left the show} and it amazes me how they somehow convince big stars across the board to partner up for a quick song and accompanying music video in the form of a SNL Digital Short.  To round out their tour of all that is awesome earlier this year the boys behind The Lonely Island decided to put together a full length album entitled Incredibad (amazon) (itunes) and give all of us fans a full forty two minutes of fun.

mp3 : The Lonely Island – I’m On a Boat (feat T-Pain)
mp3 : The Lonely Island – Lazy Sunday (feat Christ Parnell)
mp3 : The Lonely Island – Boombox (feat Julian Casablancas)

I could have chosen almost any of the nineteen tracks on the album but I thought these three showcase the actual talent behind the music.  Granted there’s nothing about putting things in boxes or cleaning something out of your pants mentioned in these songs, but I really think these three are a good sample of the work and musicality that actually go into a creating a great parody.  And on top of that Lazy Sunday started the trend, Boombox features one of my favorite artists of all time, and I’m On a Boat had the most ridiculous production budget for an SNL Digital Short I’ve ever seen {not to mention it is quite obviously the best rap/hip hop parody ever created}.

Anyone want to get together and split a bottle of Santana Champ?

    ok so when I first heard boombox, I was smitten immediately because I hadn’t heard my dear Julian’s voice in SO long. just last week I realized what the actual lyrics were (that Jules sings I mean), as I was listening to the whole song

    Everybody started having sex
    The music was way too powerful
    A bunch of old people fucking like rabbits
    It was disgusting to say the least
    A boombox can change the world
    You gotta know your limits with a boombox
    This was a cautionary tale
    A boombox is not a toy”

    I didn’t even realize that he sang the word “sex”!

    love it.
