There have been a few songs on the show that didn't do much for me and I was more or less just waiting for them to be over so I could get back to the story.

Me too CJ, I massively :heart: Cheer Up Murray. It would be in my top 5 (I think - maybe I should say top 10 to be sure :lol: ).


thestray ( :wave: - I should wander into the Greetings thread), there are songs that I really just wanted to be over at first glance/listen, but now I'm really into them now :hrm: (eg. Angels, Demon Woman).

Really?... In addition to Cheer Up Murray, I love love love Bret You've Got it Going On, If You're Into It, and Song for Sally.

I LOVE Song For Sally! Definitely in my Top 10! Love it so much! Play it on my uke all the time :) Not so much a fan of Inner City Pressure though :/

I enjoy pretty much all of their songs but of course some have had to grow on me. One song which I do tend to skip though these days is Petrov, Yelyena and Me.

Do you skip through both versions, or just the one on Freaky? I do not like that one, not at all. :hrmpf: Now, the one on FTW has grown on me to the point that it's one of my faves! :D

I never have warmed to Freaky on record, but like it live.

Frodo, Don't Wear the Ring is funny about five times.

And, no flames, but I was never a fan of Petrov - it's funny a couple of times, but not in my top ten for sure.

Otherwise, I like most of their stuff.

There's very few songs that I don't like. I find myself skipping Foux du Fafa a lot recently...and I know I've expressed my opinion on Inner City Pressure before.

Unfortunately both versions, Laura but I do prefer the Folk The World version because Jemaine is great in it too. I was intrigued by the song at first but after a few listens, I wasn't enjoying it as much. :dunno:

I'm not a fan or familiar with Bowie either, but for some reason I still love that song, it's so absurd, plus it sounds good.

"Petrov, Yeylena and Me", "Demon Woman", and "Prince of the Parties" are ones I can remember where I was waiting to laugh, but never really did. I'm not that crazy about "Foux Da Fafa" either. Kinda liked it the first time, but now when I watch that episode I just skip through it.

I love Foux Du Fafa! It holds a special place in my heart (it was the first FOTC song I heard). :heart:

I like the tune for Prince of Parties but yeah I didn't laugh through it either. Except for maybe the bit Bret sitting on a horse who is also Bret (although that's not part of the song is it).

I'm not fussed on Business Time. :o :shock: I liked it at first but after like 10 times the joke wears thin and there's not enough singing (IMHO :wink: ).
