Baby Got Skulls

Posted by shanoah on June 29, 2008

All right, those of you that didn’t like the previous Jonathan Coulton songs I played can skip this post.

Because I’m starting to really like his music, and couldn’t resist sharing a few more.

Skullcrusher Mountain – Jonathan Coulton

This song is classic. It’s one of the few mad scientist love songs I have heard, and it’s so true to form it’s beautiful. And the chorus is great.

Say I shouldn’t kill you yet"
