From racist dragons to killer robots, leggy blondes to epileptic dogs – these much loved Kiwi losers have sung about it all. See which tunes tickled us.
Whether you’re one of the lucky few who bagged a ticket to the Conchords sold out UK tour, or among the thousands of lovesick fans who missed out, these songs should certainly provoke a chuckle or two. Either that or send you into jealous rage, prompting you to try and sell a kidney on Ebay to get your greasy mitts on a ticket. Whichever path is yours, enjoy.
In the future, we’ll all dance the robo-boogie, and every song will contain a binary solo. Yes. Affirmative. All together now: ‘zero zero zero zero zero zero one…’
Cheer Up Murray
Fed up of your miserable humdrum life? Well it could be worse, you could be the copper-haired manager of a talentless digi-folk duo. Here’s Bret and Jemaine’s heartfelt ode to the one they call ‘Gingerballs’.
‘Were you ever called homo ‘cos at school you took drama? Have you ever been told that you look like a llama?’ If so, let’s just call this song therapy. Prepare to be enlightened, as believe it not – rapper’s have feelings too.
If You’re Into It
Awkward as ever, Bret (with Jemaine’s ‘help’) attempts to woo his latest flame Coco, expressing all the things he’d do for her, from just hanging out to a ménage à trois in the kitchen. Who says romance is dead?
Albi the Racist Dragon
Bigotry, racism, the battle for acceptance – just some of the deep, philosophical issues addressed by a big ol’ dragon living in a cottage made of cheese. Maybe we should stick Nick Griffin in a cave with a badly burned Albanian boy too, see if it makes the spam-faced gobshite see the error of his ways…
Too Many Dicks (On The Dancefloor)
We’ve all been there, spent half your wages to get into a swanky club, remortgaged your house to get a drink at the bar, only to be faced with wall to wall sausage on the dance floor. So take heed of the Kiwis’ message, and ‘Make sure you know before you go, the dance floor bro-ho ratio’.
What do you think of our top five? ‘How can you leave out such modern classics as Business Time, Leggy Blonde and Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros?’ I hear you cry. Well feel free to direct your moans into the shout box below.
Note: The mathematicians among you may have noticed six entries in our top five (if you haven’t noticed then forget we mentioned it), but after countless hours spent and tears shed over picking just five, we thought we’d try to pull a fast one instead. We won’t tell if you won’t…
