The Late Movies: Flight of the Conchords
New Zealand hunkthrob band Flight of the Conchords recently recorded a brilliant new song, "Feel Inside (and Stuff Like That)," for charity. Seeing Bret and Jemaine back in action, I thought it was time to look back at some of their greatest hits (and stuff like that).
"Feel Inside (and Stuff Like That)"
In order to write the song, the guys interviewed a bunch of kids. Favorite lyric? "The? kids who are sick cannot do their hip-hop anymore." In case you don't catch the reference part-way through, Bret wrote the songs for the recent Muppet Movie. Also note that I skipped this video forward to the cute part with the kids -- if you want more Conchords skit action, back it up to the start.
"I might go to bed, I've got work in the morning." I know what you're trying to say, baby.
"If You're Into It"
"You could bring your roommate...Stu."
"Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros"
They invented rap in New Zealand.
"Most Beautiful Girl"
"In the whole wide room."
"I'm Not Crying"
Oh hell yes.
"Bowie's in Space"
"This is Bowie to Bowie -- do you hear me, man?"
"I Told You I Was Freaky"
"Stick some money to the honey, now I'm covered in money, honey!"
With subtitles in French for no reason.
"Even the Honey Buckets are domed in the future." Live at Sasquatch, 2008.
"Rambling Through The Avenues Of Time"
"So did you get the bread or what?"
"Life's a Happy Song" (ft. Kermit the Frog)
Although not strictly a Conchords joint, here's Bret and Kermit singing a Muppet song.
