The Boy Least Likely To are preparing to release a collection of b-sides, entitled The Best B-Sides Ever, to select stores. I’ve heard very few of the songs included, so I can’t wait to get my hands on this. Below, I’ve included one of the tracks: “When I Grow Up I Want To Be A Boy Again.” Head after the jump to see the full tracklisting. It’s a shame they didn’t include their cover of “You’re The One That I Want” from Grease, being such a great song and all (head here to listen to it).
The video for The Boy Least Likely To‘s song “When Life Gives Me Lemons I Make Lemonade” can be seen after the jump. The video is exactly what we’ve come to expect from The Boy Least Likely To – it’s so silly it almost hurts. There’s some goofy-yet-cute looking flying creature that meets a happy-go-lucky apple; all is well and good until the duo run into a couple of nasty lemons. From there on out the video pretty much follows the lyrics of the song. It’s quite enjoyable.
Thanks to Pitchfork we now have a version of the Grease classic “You’re The One That I Want” performed by The Boy Least Likely To. The song is a b-side to their upcoming single “When Live Gives Me Lemons I Make Lemonade.” Check it out below.
Multi-instrumentalist Pete Jobbs and vocalist Jof Owen are the duo behind The Boy Least Likely To – the infectious twee-pop band that spawned the single “Be Gentle With Me.” Their 2005 debut, The Best Party Ever, was a look into childhood through the eyes of two men who seemingly don’t want to grow up. It was a charming affair with catchy melodies, silly lyrics, and all-around good fun. Nearly four years later, Jobbs and Owen are back with The Law of the Playground.
