I really need to buy some of Jonathan Coulton's music. Not only did he write the theme to Code Monkeys, but he wrote "Ikea" and the ever-popular "Re: Your Brains." No doubt there are other hidden gems in this lot. Hee! :)

His most famous work is "Still Alive." It's the closing theme for Portal.

I saw that, too, and it made me chortle, but I don't know the game. Once I get an MP3 player (one of these millenia) I think his stuff is going on there with Stephen Lynch and Tom Lehrer. :)

I saw him in concert a few months back and still find myself with some of his songs stuck in my head.

We're listening to more of his stuff and there's more I like. :)

You need to listen to his cover of "Baby Got Back". It is a thing of beauty. Hint: He sings it like James Taylor.

I'm not in the least bit surprised you'd squee over him. He's extremely clever with a turn of phrase, like you are. :)

Are you going to his show at the Belly-Up in May?

My personal favorite is 'Sky Mall', but his newest song, 'Blue Sunny Day' is pretty good too. Also, 'Skullcrusher Mountain'.

I loled at "First of May." Took me a few times listening in the background to fully get it. :)

I suppose you already realize, given that you linked to his page, but since I like to state the obvious: you can (legally) download a lot of it for free and then pay for it later.

I like Drinking With You, When You Go, Creepy Doll and the aforementioned Blue Sunny Day. Among others.

I saw that, but I'm tempted to just buy everything at this point. :)

Go for it :) He rocks, and his music rocks.
