Threesome: Language matters

May 18, 2008

Threesome is a new feature on this blog. As its name suggests, it’s a trio of songs that are related by a common theme (okay, wait, I know that’s not what its name suggests to most of you…). Today’s theme is language, and this post features songs about the Oxford comma, the word ‘underwhelmed’ (which is, in fact, in the OED), and some general linguistic playfulness from UW-Madison via The Box Social.

MP3: Vampire Weekend – Oxford Comma (more Vampire Weekend)

MP3: Sloan – Underwhelmed (more Sloan)

MP3: The Box Social – Why Oh Why (more The Box Social)

Previously: The logical outcome of OCD ticket purchasing; Coverage: Vampire Weekend, “Exit Music (for a Film); Neophile: The Box Social
