Song-A-Day: January 5th

The NFL playoffs started yesterday in dramatic fashion as The Kansas City Chiefs suffered a historic collapse to the Indianapolis Colts thanks to unfortunate luck with injuries and inspired play by Andrew Luck and T.Y. Hilton, while the Philadelphia Eagles lost to the New Orleans Saints on the last play of the game on a field goal by Shayne Graham to give them a 26-24 win.

The good news for the Chiefs and Eagles is that although what happened to them is extremely unfortunate, things could be much worse for them as there are definitely more cursed franchises in sports. Today’s Song-A-Day goes to The Mountain Goats with “Cubs in Five” where John Darnielle sings about how he’s going to find a way to love his lover again, how the Tampa Bay Bucs are going to make it to January, and how the Chicago Cubs are going to win it all in 5.

 

They’re gonna find intelligent life up there on the moon
And the Canterbury Tales will shoot up to the top of the best seller list
And stay there for 27 weeks

And the Chicago Cubs
Will beat every team in the league
And the Tampa Bay Bucs
Will make it all the way to January
And I will love you again
I will love you,
Like I used to
I will love you again
I will love you,
Like i used to

The stars are gonna spell out the answers to tommorow’s crosswords
And the Phillips Corporation will admit that they’ve made an awful mistake
And Bill Gates will single handedly spearhead
The Heaven Seventeen Revival

And the Chicago Cubs
Will beat every team in the league
And the Tampa Bay Bucs
Will take it all the way to the top
And I will love you again
I will love you,
Like I used to
I will love you again
I will love you,
Like i used to
