The Lonely Island – Finest Girl (Bin Laden Song)

It’s not easy to make Bin Laden the centerpiece of a song about sex. Do they manage it here?

Eh, sorta.

It’s not a terrible song, but it isn’t great by a long stretch. Following the recounting of an unusual sexual request being fulfilled, the song makes a few unusual lyrical choices. For example:

The President called, he said “congratulations Connor”
I said “Mr. President, to what do I owe this honor?”
He said “come give me the deets in the White House garden
I gots to know how you fucked her like we
Fucked Bin Laden”
Now, that’s a weird one. A particularly weird one. And of course, the way that penultimate line gets spoken-sang adds a certain something to the experience, and in my opinion, it is good that it adds it. Unfortunately, though, it lets itself down with the overuse of that last line – “fucked Bin Laden”.
It’s an unusual topic, and whilst I doubt most people could pull it off, I reckon it’s worked here. Barely, but still. It worked.
That Guy
