Listening to Mango
by Bruce Cockburn, 1999
“ She's got a mango in her garden: from the original tree
She's got a mango in her garden: shares it with me
Humid gleaming precious well, love to drink that water ”
Rebecca: I draw Mango.
Galen: versus Let's Get It On! Oh come on.
Sarah: Do we even have to play these?
Galen: I haven't ever heard the Mango song.
Sarah: It's alright, if you're into adult contemporary folk.
Galen: And who isn't, these days?
Sarah: This isn't the most erotic instrumentation.
Galen: That fretless bass is kind of pervy. Bowwwwww. Mowwwwww.
Sarah: But with the sharp guitar, it sounds like a protest song.
Rebecca: Yeah, why is he so sad about it? I'd be excited.
Galen: Maybe it's rotten!
Sarah: Hey, it's “sweet as can be.”
Rebecca: That bit about getting hotter was not convincing.
Listening to Let's Get It On
by Marvin Gaye, 1973
“ Come on, darling
Stop beating 'round the bush ”
Sarah: This is my favorite double entendre of all time.
Rebecca: He doesn't need fretless bass. He's got that un-fretless bass.
Galen: Fretted for her pleasure Yeah, this song wins.
Sarah: Does anyone want to vote for Mango?
Galen & Rebecca: No!
Winner: Let's Get It On
