LucidSportsFan’s Awesome Old Song of the Week

barenaked-ladies-gordon.if.i.had.a.million.dollarsThe Canadian pop/rock group Barenaked Ladies gained mainstream success in the U.S. in the mid to late 1990’s.  As far as I can remember their music appeared in the background of just about every single episode of Dawson’s Creek (mental note: make sure to write a blog or two or several about Dawson’s Creek).

But my all-time favorite song of theirs actually came out several years before that.  It appeared on an album called Gordon in 1992, although it was in fact recorded much earlier.  It’s silly and fun and surprisingly catchy, even though it sounds like something they just made up as they went along one night while drunk in somebody’s basement.

Amazingly the group never made a video for “If I Had $1,000,000.”  And to this day I still think real green dresses are cruel.
