Everybody with ears to hear knows that “La-la-la-la-la-la-la means I love you,” and that’s just one of the lessons to be reinforced this week as Frank ‘n’ George present a whole bunch of words they like put in nifty order and then set to song. Simply put, we’re going to play songs with our favorite lyrics, and somehow not make it just two hours of Cole Porter, Elvis Costello, and Stephin Merritt. (Although you’ll definitely hear something from all three of them.) But we’ve got a hankering for the stoopid smart lyric, too, at least one of us does, and then we also learn how many of our favorite songs have naughty bits we need to bleep out. What does that say about us? About good lyrics? Tune in to find out.
“Frank ‘n’ George” airs Tuesdays 10 am – 12 noon this winter.
