There are a lot of reasons to be proud of Oklahoma recently, namely the cowboys Jet and Cord’s domination in The Amazing Race (as far as I’m concerned, they won the competition) and the comeback of Hanson.  That’s right: Hanson.  Thirteen years after their "MMMBop" success they are experiencing a renaissance.  They performed last night at the Brady Theater for the Conan O’Brien Legally Prohibited to be Funny Tour and I was really impressed. Their voices are incredible and they looked like they were having the time of their lives up there.  They are fantastic performers.  They did a cover of Hoyt Axton’s "Never Been to Spain" that was so much fun and they have a new single "Thinkin ‘Bout Something" that’s equally uplifting.  See above video.  Keep an open mind about these Tulsa brothers—their catchy, feel-good power pop songs might just be the antidote to a bad day.  


  1. This video is so cool. I'm a sucker for big group numbers.

  2. This video is a tribute to the movie The Blues Brothers as there is a very similar dance number in the movie involving people in a music store and dancing on the streets. Except this was filmed in the Greenwood neighborhood of Tulsa.
