Tune in Tuesday: Barenaked Ladies

I remember when this band first became popular.  There was a huge stink from feminists because of their name.  I bought Gordon, their first CD  anyway.  It is probably one of my most played CDS and I know every single word of each song. 

At work there was a time when we were allowed to bring in our own music and each day I brought in Gordon, though my co-workers hated it.  I knew that if I brought Gordon, that I would at least have one hour of music that I liked.  It helped me get through my days and pretend I was not dealing with people that I could not stand.   I guess you could say that Gordon allowed me to have a mental escape from an environment, that I had come to view as absolutely intolerable.

Do you have any special Barenaked Ladies memories and what is your favourite song by them?
