Here's an excerpt from Matthews' "Shake Me Like a Monkey" off the new record:
can't stop thinking 'bout you
Yeah yeah yeah
Why would I want to
I like my coffee with toast and
Jelly but I'd rather be licking
From your back to your belly
Richard: "I've said a lot of bad things about Dave Matthews over the years, about how his frat boy anthems have served as the background to a lot of evenings of date-raping, but I think we can see that he's really matured as a songwriter with this new effort."
Chip: "It seems strange to limit his licking to that particular area, back to belly, and I think it's ultimately suggestive of a kind of innocence that belies the seemingly explicit sexual nature of the song."
But more likely to win is Lady Gaga, whose song "Poker Face" has been omnipresent. Here are a few lyrics:
"I won't tell you that I love you
kiss or hug you
cause I'm bluffin' with my muffin
I'm not lyin' I'm just stunnin' with my love-glue gunnin'"
Chip: "I hate when girls bluff with their muffins, but I love this song. And did you know there's a parody of this song called "No Poker Face" (which has become very popular down in Forttt Scottt) that is performed by Megan Phelps of that gay-hating Topeka congregation. There's even a video, which you may want to check out (perhaps not while at work). Basically it's about how God hates "Lady Gay-Gay," and will destroy her. Megan's dance moves are surprisingly awesome:
But maybe you're looking for a band that's a little out of the mainstream? Perhaps a good old-fashioned pop-punk band whose songs are entirely about Star Wars and will help you forget that the Avatards have now made Cameron's new flick officially the top-grossing film of all time?
If so, check out Sex Wing Starfighter. With songs like " Stuck In The Outer Rim," "Sarlacc," "She Drives A Speederbike To School," and "My Droid," you can easily forget all about Cameron's Smurfy-looking Na'vi's and slip back into a simpler time, when popular movies were occasionally good.

(Thanks to local "rock star journalist" Nick Spac.k for tipping us off to these sweet tunes. Richard has been rocking with "She Drives a Speederbike to School" all day!)
