in this solo episode i compare my comedy love songs with actual love songs. I personally find most songs that make people laugh hilarious and when I started writing music I unintentionally kept making people laugh. I find the most honest love songs written by black dudes and country singers. I review: Celine Dion Richard Marx The police Kanye West Willie Nelson Taylor Swift Elvis Coldplay Boys 2 Men Adele Poison Journey I play my originals such as: Light on the sugar DiCaprio How to love a woman Dreams I deserve an 8 I kept loving you even more windy face OTPHJ (in a walgreens) Email me at whydidnttheylaughpodcast@gmail.com I'd love to hear your thoughts see me on tour owenbenjamin.com/tour and of course subscribe, comment, rate, and share y'all.
