Push Back the Couch, Make Some Room
MC Honky's CD was released almost three years ago on SpinArt, but no matter. MC Honky is (most likely) E from the Eels. The song, "Sonnet 3" is a dance party favorite at our house and can get even grandma moving. The rest of the record is pretty hilarious, with some thrift store self-help records sampled (or someone parodying such). It's fun and funny. The Eels also have a track on the Shrek 2 soundtrack that's lovely, though not a dance number and not here today, but it's called "Need Some Sleep." Back to the dancing. The Bees (or Band of Bees if you live in England) have a great new dance song called, "Chicken Payback." Chicken-fried soul with a good beat and who can resist animal calls? The video for this one is chuckle inducing. Make sure you all sing along.

The Bees, "Chicken Payback"
Watch the cartoon video for Honky's Sonnet. And watch the Bees' video for "Chicken Payback." The band is on Astralwerks is you're looking for more, more, more.
