Fuck You"F**k You" was among the first Garfunkel & Oates songs, written as part of a collaborative musical project known as "Imaginary Larry." When the ladies began performing songs together on YouTube, they revamped "F**k You" and posted it as a "Redo." The film features the trademark combination of Riki on guitar and Kate on ukelele, as well as a kazoo solo. Though the duo typically perform the choruses of their songs in sync, "F**k You" plays around with this gimmick, having them accidentally sing different, more extreme versions over one another.

Pregnant Women are SmugSo, Kate and Riki's theory is that everyone finds pregnant women to be smug, but no one says anything. Because they're pregnant. If that's not enough to convince you, there's always Kate's impression of a smug pregnant lady to seal the deal. The song has proved one of the more controversial Garfunkel & Oates selections, particularly among pregnant women, who seem to not really enjoy being called smug.

Me, You and SteveThis catchy little lament tells the story of a woman who wants nothing more than to enjoy the company of her new beau. Unfortunately, they are constantly being shadowed by the man's irritating friend, Steve, who persists in accompanying them on dates. A prime example of Garfunkel & Oates' ability to combine humorous observational comedy, a compelling narrative and a catchy hook into one 2 minute comedy routine. (The song is said to be based on an actual situation in Riki's life.)

Weed Card"Weed Card" points out the relative ease of obtaining a license to smoke medical marijuana in the State of California. The video finds Kate and Riki, initially concerned that it will be difficult to obtain the titular card, before discovering a doctor (played by comedian and "Anchorman" star David Koechner), who immediately provides a government supply to get legally high. Among the ailments for which the girls recommend pot prescriptions are anxiety, obesity, carpel tunnel syndrome, stuttering, tooth decay or even asthma.

Why Isn't There More F**king on This Island?In honor of the finale of "LOST," the ladies wonder musically why more of the characters on the show didn't spend their time on the island having sex. After all, they're a pretty attractive bunch taken together, and as the ladies say, one way to look at their predicament would be "the best vacation of your life."

Go Kart Racing (Accidentally Masturbating)In what the ladies insist is a "true story," they describe Riki having fun at the go-kart track before suddenly discovering that the vibrations of the machine is making her sexually aroused. Despite her initial qualms, the chorus reveals that there was "no stopping till [she] crossed the finish line."

I Don't Understand Job
In this Funny or Die exclusive, Kate and Riki complain - through the medium of rap - about their difficulty with manually stimulating sexual partners. The song is among the more sexually explicit of Garfunkel & Oates songs, and springs from the girls' genuine anxiety about being "late bloomers" and skipping directly from kissing to sex without learning about alternative activities at an appropriate age. The song features a variety of pop culture references and allusions, including "Unsolved Mysteries" host Robert Stack, artist Jackson Pollock, "Blossom" star Mayim Bialik, "Bones" star Emily Deschanel, comedian Dave Chappelle and "Singled Out" host Chris Hardwick.
