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:
