If You're Into It :: Flight of the Conchords

My first post of the new year! Let's start 2008 with a laugh, shall we?

So, you know when you are kind of into someone and you kind of let them know by saying something about hanging out again, or whatever, and you follow it up with a, "Well, you know, if you want to, I mean, if you're into it..."

Yeah. Smooth. I think we've all probably awkwardly thrown that out there at some point. Truly the ultimate follow up to whatever suggestion you make, "if you're into it" hints at what you want to do, but passively lets you off the hook and puts the responsibility on the other person. It shows how, um, laid back, casual and easy going you are (trying to seem). Not into it? No worries, you weren't that into in either anyway (lie!). Into it? Everybody wins (yes, they are into it!). Right? Uh, yeah...

So, now, enter "If You're Into It", from Flight of the Conchords. It just kills me! This song is guaranteed to make me laugh, for oh-so-many reasons. Flight of the Conchords is a pop/folk/comedy duo out of New Zealand, and they are fantastic and hilarious. They parody a variety of musical genres and their lyrics are wacky. The best part is that they are actually great musicians. In addition to albums and funny music videos and live music/comedy shows and a radio show, these guys also have a self-titled TV show on HBO. Busy little beavers, they are. Check out the song and get ready to smile.

Video!



Lyrics!
If you want me to
I could hang 'round with you
If I only knew
That's what you're into.
You and him
Him and you
If that's what
You're into
Him hanging 'round
Around you
You're hanging 'round
Yeah, you're there too.
And if you want me to
I will take off all my clothes for you
I will take off all my clothes for you
If that's what you're into
How 'bout him
In the nude?
If that's what
You're into.
In the nude in front of you
Is that what you'd wanna view?
If it's cool with you
I'll let you get naked too
It could be a dream come true
Providing that's what you are into
Is that what
You're into?
Him and you
In the nude?
That's what he's prepared to do
Is that the kind of thing you think you might be into?
And then maybe later
We get hot by the refrigerator
In the kitchen next to the pantry
You think that might be what you fancy?
In the buff
Being rude
Doing stuff
With the food
Getting lewd
With his food
We heard that's what you are into
Then on our next date
Well, you could bring your roommate
I don't know if Stu is keen to
But if you want we could double-team you
How about you
And two dudes?
Him, you and Stu
In the nude
Being lewd with two dudes with food
Well, that's if Stu's into it, too
All the things I'd do
The things I'd do for you
If I only knew
That's what you're into

But wait! There's more!
Okay, these guys have so many other hysterical videos I had to include a bonus. It was hard to pick, but this one is totally sick. Get ready for "She's So Hot (BOOM)".
