Barenaked ABCs (Alphabetical Barenaked [Ladies] Catalog) is a weekly podcast where four Mainahs discuss the Barenaked Ladies catalog alphabetically, one song at a time, making certain to take time on the rare tracks, such as the Yellow Tape and Buck Naked, all the way to their newest tunes, including from Fake Nudes. We try to infuse humor with education about the band and examination of the songs themselves. On later episodes, we give information about appearances of the band and the history of BNL.

    Episode 166: Life, In A Nutshell

    This week’s episode is the longest yet.  I mean, we have to sum up all of “Life” in a nutshell.  That can’t be done quickly.  Luckily, we have some pretty deep souls joining us this week, as JD and Nick from Barenaked Ladies Are Us decide, that even though they have finished all the BNL albums, they would come back to discuss this song with us.

    Episode 164: Let There Be Light

    We discussed a song about drug dealers at a convenience store last week. This week we take a more positive view on life, as Mil helps us to reflect on the uplifting message from Kevin on this B-side in an era when B-sides no longer exist.

    The lyrics:







    You’re looking down at the ground







    Your plans are in tatters







    There’s no time to lose







    You’ve got to choose what really matters(chorus)







    Let there be light in your life again







    Let there be light in your life again







    Your rotten luck







    I mean really what were the chances







    Let’s make no sound







    Let’s lie on the ground Look up through the branches(chorus)







    And Let there be light in your life againLet there be light in your life again







    (Bridge)







    If your heart is heavy, and you’re alone







    Feelin’ lost in the honeycomb (you ate a whole box of honeycombs)







    you can call me, you can call me, you can call me, I’ll be (home?)I am at home







    There’s so much darkness,







    So much bizarreness and commotion







    Your shipwrecked dream may be at the bottom of the oceanCheap souvenirs. Won’t you help me clear out all of this clutter







    Too many tears for too many years







    Why lose another?(chorus)







    Let there be light in your life again







    Let there be light in your life againLet there be light in your life again (in your life)Let there be light in your life again
