Song of the Day - 4/1/06... fools

LFO (Lyte Funky Ones) formed in the boy-band mecca of Orlando, FL in 1996; there singer Rich Cronin befriended aspiring model Brad Fischetti, and as a duo they spent the next two years honing their vocal, dancing and songwriting skills. With the addition of third vocalist Devin Lima, LFO's line-up was complete, and the trio toured in support of the Backstreet Boys and N'Sync before releasing their self-titled debut album in 1999, scoring a hit with the single "Summer Girls." The attempted to do it again in summer 2001 with the release of Life Is Good, but nobody really cared.

It's no surprise that this song would turn up at some point as song of the day. Making countless top 10 lists all over the place and generally known in the underground of the music community as some of the greatest songwriters of all time, Rich "Big Rich" Cronin, Brad "Fish Hookz" Fischetti and Devin "The" Lima are often compared to the likes of John Lennon and Bob Dylan. For example, in today's song of the day the Lyte Funky Ones makes olde English literature accessible to younger generations with lines like, "When you come near you buzz like a hornet, Billy Shakespeare wrote a whole bunch of sornets." At other times they will form a close connection with the audience by discussing topics that maybe might be close to them maybe. Ex: "You are the cutest girl that I ever did see, the late Larry Bird Jersey.. THIRTY THREE." Pop culture isn't taboo for them either! " Fell deep in love,but now we ain't speakin, Michael J Fox was Alex P Keaton" This song was written in '96 or something... so it wouldn't be the best to reference a television from fucking ten years before that, but not for LFO, no sir. Finally, and possibly the best line in songwriting history, " There was a good man named Paul Revere, I feel much better baby when you're near." It just makes sense...

also, there was an equally "special" parody by the band HMO entitled "Hummer Girls." It was about blow jobs... but I don't really feel like making anyone listen to it...
