“Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm”

i don’t know what made me search on Napster for this song (song title is title of post) today but i’ve enjoyed re-listening to it immensely. i know music is subjective (like all art) but i think you would be hard-pressed to argue about it being such a unique song. what makes it a musical oddity is not just the deep bass vocals by Brad Roberts but most of the song doesn’t rhyme–which is not only extremely rare but difficult to successfully pull off. the lyrics, while not deep, tell a story that also has comical elements in it. i can’t help but smile when he sings, “But both girl and boy were glad, ‘Cause one kid had it worse than that”. It’s amusing that what turns out to be worse than white hair or birthmarks is that this kid has to go to a holy roller church because “They’d always just gone there.” This a well crafted and original song on a multitude of levels. what do you think?
