For Your Listening (Dis)Pleasure

Not since Melissa Lamb of “Box in a Box” fame have we at Under the Button been so taken with a Penn musician. We actually have no clue who this guy is (help us out?) but we’re assuming only a Penn student could have created this fantastically wretched “school spirit remix.” What is he remixing? Who knows, but you really owe it to yourself to have a listen:

We challenge you to get this out of your head. (UTB step!) But really, kudos to this guy for making us laugh and causing us to imagine what it might be like for UPenn to ball through all the frats and sororities on campus. We don’t even know what that would entail, but we like the sound of it. And shout out to Under the Button! Even if it was actually about sex with Amy Gutmann (offering an excellent opportunity to educate us on slant rhyme–thanks anonymous rapper!) we’re just going to take what we can get. And to everyone out there who said “huh?” after listening, Martin Luther King, Jr. did study at Penn briefly while he attended theological seminary. Go, Quaker, go!

But really, is that squeaky voice saying peek-a-boo? Seriously? Genius.

I believe the sample is actually the track “School Spirit” off of Ye’s breakthrough album College Dropout.

The original song had all of the black greek letter orgs, which are absent on this track. Even though Penn has some.

It’s Marc Friedman, graduated Penn ’07, performed as C-Free

if you listen, around 3:00-3:20 he says his letters are TE Phi…TEP and that he has 2 years left. So this guy is some sophomore in TEP. How did you even find this?

And the mystery is solved. Marc “C-Free” Friedman, C’07 and proud TEP bro, is indeed responsible for this track. Check it: http://www.purevolume.com/cfree.
