Eliot, who studied classical singing at NYU, uses "Haunting Renditions" as an outlet to perform mindless pop songs with a level of respect and poise usually reserved for Wagner. The tagline really sums it up: "Bad songs made good."
But let Eliot tell you about it himself...
1. "California Gurls" by Katy Perry
Is "California Gurls" about the frivolity of West Coast summer love or a mediation on the secret pain that we all hide from the world?
2. "Bug A Boo" by Destiny's Child
Pagers, AOL, the pope, using the word "hot." Did Destiny's Child predict our addiction to social media?
3. "Sk8r Boi" by Avril Lavigne
Classic teenage love affair, or postmodern analysis of Romeo & Juliet?
4. "Opposites Attract" by Paula Abdul
Was Paula Abdul asking America to interrogate race relations in the 1990s?
5. "Too Close" by Next
Much like Freud's approach to "the super-ego," Next demands that we honor the deeper meaning of boners.
6. "Uninvited" by Alanis Morissette
The agency of female sexuality. Can we deny its prowess? No. We cannot.
7. Ashlee Simpson / Backstreet Boys Medley
Is Ashley Simpson our generation's JFK? Well... Probably not. But this medley is very catchy!
Be sure to catch Eliot in the next season of "Broad City" and also on Above Average where he has an original sketch show called "Eliot's Sketchpad."
