"Five Songs That Will Put You in the Mood for Love" According to Maz Jobrani
Being a youngster in Iran gave comedian Maz Jobrani plenty of material to sharpen his craft for clowning and it definitely shows in his set. Not only does he showcase some stellar dance moves while gracing the stage, his act also talks up finding the humor in racial stereotypes, his family life then and now, the differences in way the world views politics, and owning his baldness. (Lucky for him, he pulls off the Mr. Clean flawlessly.) With everyone's favorite candy and flower-filled holiday falling during Maz's weekend at the Brea Improv (February 14th through 16th), Jobrani put together a list of"Five Songs That Will Put You in the Mood for Love."
This is a great song because it encourages people to go have sex in public.
5- Hall and Oates, "Private Eyes"
Maz Jobrani: Because even stalkers celebrate Valentine's Day. If there's a girl you've been secretly watching and you want to finally come out and let her know, this is the song for you. It's also got a catchy moment where you do a single clap followed by a double clap so you don't even have to worry about learning the words. Any stalker with rhythm can follow and enjoy this weird love song/stalker song/creepy song.
4- Journey, "Faithfully"
I'm on the road a lot as a comedian so this one plays close to my heart. That said, you don't have to be on the road to appreciate it. Just go for a drive to pick up some milk for your loved one and play this song while you're gone. You will long for her, miss her, and want her. You will rush to the refrigerator at 7/11 and grab the milk. You will get back in the car and play it again, thinking of how hard you are going to hug her when you're back home. After all, you've been gone for at least 10 minutes. You will open the door, drop the milk and embrace her. She will push you off, weirded out at your over-emotionality. Then she will open the bag and tell you that you've gotten the wrong milk. Back on the road buddy!
