Okay, the answer is (obviously) "Plus Ones." It is a song which Will Scheff takes classic chunes with numbers in the title, and adds one (Plus One). The first line of the song, "No one wants to hear about your 97th tear," referring to the song "96 Tears" by ?. Another line, "No one wants a chune about the 100th luftballoon," referring to "99 Luftballoons" by Nena. Etc, etc, etc... Remember, I have a MATH problem?
The first time I heard it, I figured out what he was doing halfway through the song, and proceeded to listen to it about six or seven more times back to back. I was walking across the Broadway Bridge when I caught the concept, and thought, "holy shit, this is fucking awesome." I didn't even know the title was "Plus Ones" when I figured it out, I just thought "he is adding one number to song titles."
I'll let you guys fight over who wants to make the next question.
