"Skullcrusher Mountain" - Sweetest Evil Genius Song Ever

Image credit: 

Here's a little Friday silliness for you. Jonathan Coulton sings "Skullcrusher Mountain," a love song sung from the perspective of an evil genius to his muse/obsessive crush. Representative lyrics:

I made this half-pony/half-monkey monster to please you
But I get the feeling that you don't like it
What's with all the screaming?

You like monkeys, you like ponies...
Maybe you don't like monsters so much.
Maybe I used too many monkeys?
Isn't it enough to know that I ruined a pony making a gift for you?

Recorded live at the Manchester Academy on 29 October 2008:
