Five Songs That Make Kathleen Madigan Want to Drive Her Car Off a Bridge
|If you waterboard her, do it with Dolly Parton playing|
Before she crashes into the City National Grove of Anaheim on Friday, Madigan gave us a list of picks from bad to worse that usually make her want to end it all before the end of the song.
5. Lana Del Rey
Anything sung by Lana Del Rey because, dear God, life can't be that bad at her age. Her music is what I picture that I'd hear at the IRS when an audit is going badly. First confusion, then resignation, then desperation, and then despair. All really fun feelings!
4. Frank Ocean
Frank Ocean's "Forrest Gump," or whatever that was on the Grammys. I'm not familiar with the rest of his work, but this particular song made me wanna throw myself in front of a bus. Maybe that's how he felt the day he wrote it, but if not, Frank and I just have really different ideas of what enjoyable is.
Anything in the classical genre would do because it's dramatic, and drama is good for imminent death. Classical music always reminds me of Amadeus, which reminds me of insanity, and insanity reminds me of extreme drama. When the violins get going, really, anything can happen.
