"Skullcrusher Mountain" by Jonathan Coulton

Singer/songwriter Jonathan Coulton was previously featured on Neatorama a year ago for his zombie song "Re: Your Brains."

But I'm a softie for romantic ballads, such as Coulton's sweet but sad tale of unrequited love between a mad scientist and a kidnapped damsel, titled "Skullcrusher Mountain."

Especially moving are the heartfelt lyrics of the second verse:

I made this half-pony half-monkey monster to please you

But I get the feeling that you don't like it

What's with all the screaming?

You like monkeys, you like ponies

Maybe you don't like monsters so much

Maybe I used too many monkeys

Isn't it enough to know that I ruined a pony making a gift for you?

Sheesh. Some women are just never happy, no matter how many abominations against nature that you clone for them.

This is the kind of song you play when you just want a romantic night with your significant other who is a geek after a tough DnD Campaign. Wanna play?

I love this song.

Also, does anyone else have the problem of immediately getting 'Ikea' stuck in their heads whenever they enter or drive by one of those massive stores?

Happens every time with me.
