Song: Cigarettes & Chocolate Milk
Artist: Rufus Wainwright
Favorite Lyric: If I should buy jelly beans, have to eat them all in just one sitting.
Significance: I first heard this song as a cover by Nataly Dawn of Pomplamoose fame. For the most part I think Pomplamoose takes existing songs and makes them way better, but in this instance when I went to check out the source material, I thought the original was better. It’s fuller and more fleshed out than Nataly’s pared down version. And I even have a preference for the reprise version, which is the version featured in the video.
An actual video! Hooray!
