A lot of comedians make up their own funny songs. Most are stupid. They focus more on comedy rather than music quality. Which isn't bad, I mean they're comedians. That's the point.
But the thing about you guys is that your songs aren't JUST funny. They're genuinely good quality songs. Like, you know how I LOOOOOOOOVE the song "Hoover Dam"? Honestly, if it had serious/deep lyrics, it would probably be one of my favorite songs ever. It has such a catchy vocal pattern and melody. And your actual vocals on it are amazing. For real. Serious talent you guys have there.
I wonder, do you guys ever written songs that aren't comedic?
Would you ever be willing to record a "serious song" and release it?
Although I doubt you would, just because comedy is your job and people like the funny stuff, I'd buy it (:
Well, if Rhett gave me money again...Just kidding.
I can help!

Oh yes! Best $3.99 I ever spent! Y'all should go get it. These are some of my mostest favoritest songs from R&L. The lyrics are all very deep and thought provoking. I got goosebumps listening to "Your Mama Was Right" the first time I heard it! Also love the Hoover Dam, Leprechaun Named Steve, and Lonely Room 9. When I first saw those titles, I thought, eh, probably too silly. Now I perk up when those songs hit my perpetual R&L music loop.
PLUS, I feel like I'm "in" on something within the R&L Kommunity by having the "secret songs." Apparently, not even all the moderators are aware of R&L's complete works (sorry Lynne-Eministrator!)
"Invincibility...and invisibility...are over-rated, I should have asked for love..."
I would totally buy a CD of non-comedic material. I love your harmonies and arrangements. They are flawless. And I know you guys are smart and passionate (even though you stay neutral on many subjects, you must have real opinions) so could easily write some really meaningful lyrics. I'll look forward to the day when you are famous enough that it would be a worthwhile prospect for you.
I agree with this, you guys are amazing muscians, some of those harmonies you do! I've performed the facebook song doing both parts (obviously not at the same time) but it took me quite some time to actually get them right! And i've been singing harmonies since primary school! That's one of the reasons i love your stuff so much, because your melodies and rhythms etc are always so interesting and you don't just repeat yourselves and use the same style all the time (Apart from that you're hilarious of course ;D).
I would most definatly buy a serious album of yours, it would probably be one of my favourite CD's. :)
