Garfunkel & Oates: Save the Rich (A Song for Occupy Wall Street)

A song for Occupy Wall Street called "Save The Rich". Sung from the point of view of someone who believes our economy should be run for the benefit of the wealthy.

Written and performed by the comedy duo Garfunkel and Oates, which "is an American comedy-folk duo from Los Angeles, California, consisting of actress-songwriters Kate Micucci (Oates) and Riki Lindhome (Garfunkel). The band name is derived from 'two famous rock-and-roll second bananas', Art Garfunkel and John Oates" (quoted from Wikipedia).

Kate Micucci's first major television exposure was her role as Stephanie Gooch in Scrubs, and later as Shelley in Raising Hope and Raj's girlfriend Lucy in The Big Bang Theory (also quoted from Wikipedia). Although I know her from Scrubs, I've never watched either of those other programs.

Description: Official Version. Caution: includes profanity (2:48).

Description: As performed with "Weird Al" Yankovic. Profanity removed, likely for the benefit of Mr. Yankovic who does not use profanity in his music, unlike G&O (3:02).

PPP #34. See also OST #30.
