Here’s to all the folks filing jointly on Tax Day. In honor of that, “Frank ‘n’ George” have decided, after a good look in the mirror, that this week’s theme should be Odd Couples. They pop up in songs more than you think, if sometimes it’s a mere line that makes the odd couple case. (Why yes, we might be pushing it at times.) But can you honestly argue that Oedipus and Jocasta weren’t an odd couple? Tom Lehrer begs to differ. And then there’s a whole slew of rich girl/poor boy, poor girl/rich boy songs, not to mention good boy/bad girl and vice versa, emphasis on the vice. (Think Blondie’s “X Offender,” say.) Evil twins? Yep, got those too. So tune in and no doubt feel better about whatever couple you’re in (or be glad you’re not in one for you single listeners).
“Frank ‘n’ George” airs Tuesdays 10 am – 12 noon this spring.
