Best. Semi-Satirical. Tribute. Ever. [3/15/2008 09:36:00 PM]:
Yeah, yeah, I know
it's from back in 2005 or so, but homeboy Marc
brought it to my attention recently, and now I feel completely and utterly compelled to post it here: Robbie Fulks' "Fountains of Wayne Hotline"
. The first time I listened to the song (sorry, Marc, it took a while for the iPod to hit it), I nearly drove into another car, I was laughing so hard.
Like the title says, it's the perfect, perfect little piece of satire/tribute ever, in that it's both poking at FoW with a sharp stick and a brilliant example of how well the shiny-sweet pop goodness the band comes up with works and a subtle in-joke for anybody even vaguely familiar with Tech Support. Holy shit, is it good.
(To Mr. Fulks/Whomever It May Concern: In the unlikely event that you ever come across our humble site, please don't sue my broke ass. I've got to keep my little girl in broccoli and hot dogs, and only a cruel, heartless person would take away a four-year-old's hot dog, right? You're a damn genius, and I swear I post this track strictly out of love and to bring it back to the attention of our 15-sec-of-fame world. I will remove it im-freakin'-mediately if asked.)
