Video: The “Screw You” song, from Scrubs
So, first off, sorry I've been gone for so long (assuming you noticed). My work schedule has ramped up into insanity mode. But, no excuses. Anyway, I'm not sure how I found this video because I haven't watched Scrubs in several years and even then I barely watched it to begin with. I think it aired right before or after something I did want to watch but I have no idea what that even was anymore. I don't even have cable these days, so it's hard to remember what life used to be like when I had to watch commercials and shows I really didn't give a rat's ass about just to watch the ones I did.
Anyway, apparently there's something to be said for watching shows accidentally because if I was still sitting through Scrubs I would have seen this super charming video. I think I remember the bald guy as the defeated hospital lawyer, but I don't recall the girl character at all. Maybe she was later or something. Anyway, watch the video and then you can learn more about her.
See. Wasn't that rad? Anyway, using my super sleuth skills, I was able to determine that cute ukulele-playing girl's identity. She is Kate "Oates" Micucci. Oates, you say? Yup, more on that later. But, first, you probably want to know how to play that song right? Yeah, me too. So I started transcribing it and then I had the brilliant thought to search first and see if anyone else has already cracked that egg. Well, of course, Woodshed over at UkuleleHunt.com has done it already. If you wanna see why I have a real man-crush on him, check out his post where he has the tabs for the Scrubs Screw You song.
Anyway, back to this "Oates" business. Yeah, so apparently Kate is in some sort of non-New Zealand folk/parody comedy duo with Riki "Garfunkel" Lindhome. You know, like Flight of the Conchords only the American lady version. Yup, they call themselves Garfunkel and Oates and I might have as much of a crush on them as I do Jemaine of the Conchords.
So, apparently the Screw You song is one of theirs, only their version is called "Fuck You" and it has a kazoo. Can't go wrong with a kazoo and extra swearing, I always say. See, take a peak.
Yup. Adorable, right? Anyway, I expect I'll be posting more Garfunkel and Oates in the coming days, assuming my work load lets up.
