So, since I posted a humor band on Monday, I thought I would continue that theme today. Stephen Lynch is a singing comedian that has had a number of Comedy Central specials. He has also put out four albums, and a live DVD. I will say that as far as content goes, he seems to gravitate toward controversial subjects. Personally, I love him, but in today's age, I can see someone getting mad at him.
Oh, when available, I'll post the versions from his DVD, Live at the El Ray, because, you know, "Yey video!".
To start things off, here's Priest, from his freshmen album, A Little Bit Special.
Since I mostly talk about metal bands, I had to include this one. This is, What if that Guy from Smashing Pumkins Lost His Car Keys?, from his second album, Superhero.
As that one is so short, and I love this song, here's another from Superhero. This is Talk to Me.
Next is Baby, from The Craig Machine.
This final track is the title track from his latest release, 3 Balloons. Personally, I don't think this album lives up to his others. For one, I just don't think the songs are as funny.
