It bears note that the new Richard Cheese album is perhaps the best fucking farce album ever made in my lifespan.

The Killers' song 'Somebody Told Me', which you probably know if you listen to the radio ('somebody told me/ that you had a boyfriend/ who looked like a girlfriend/ that I had in February of last year'. You know it, right?) is rendered in a minor key. stripped down to slow piano and vocal. The vocalist is drunk off his ass and sounds depressed and miserable. The whole thing sounds like it belongs in the background of any number of scenes in movies built off Dashiell Hammett scripts.

Damn, but this is good.
