The Axis of Awesome is comedy act out of Australia made up of Jordan, Lee, and the often forgot Benny (the short one). Jordan and Lee are wondering why the band hadn’t had a hit record yet, and Benny lets them in on a little secret – all the greatest hits from the past 40 years shared four fundamental chords, and repeating those same four chords has resulted in pretty much every pop song ever.
Their 4 Chords song is a medley of 36 pop tracks that all contain the same basic chord structure. Check it out below.
Find a few more of their tracks after the jump.
How to Bake a Scone
The audio is not great so here are the lyrics:
Step One, Pre-heat the oven ’til it’s hot
And take the mixing bowl or pot
Spatula or wooden spoon
Settle down, we’ll be baking soon
A cup of milk, A cup of flour
Mix in an egg, wait for an hour
Take sultanas to fill the hole
I just can’t wait to lick the bowl
Take the bowl and pour the mixture in
Make sure that you pre-grease the tin
You see it’s easy, it won’t take long
Now you know, how to bake a scone.
This really made the day more bearable. It’s a music video for the single “Fot I Hose” by Norwegian electro-pop troupe, Casiokids. It’s one of those funky indie-dance tunes that you cant really get out of your head after hear it. This is a good thing. Check out “Fot I Hose” below.
Find out more about Casiokids on their MySpace page.
My day just got off to a cheery start. I’ve never heard of them before but the Wonder Girls are a very popular a South Korean girl group. Since their debut in 2007, they’ve scored 3 consecutive #1 hit singles and Nobody is their latest release.
It’s a catchy tune and worth a listen. With choice being one of our top priorities here at Onelargeprawn I give you two videos:
1. Watch a uniformed Korean man and two friends dancing to the song. The guy in the background remains asleep the whole time.
2. Watch the five ladies from the Wonder Girls doing their thing. They are hot. That is all.
