On most days, Vulture's Right-Click features five downloadable songs culled from the Internet's vast universe of music blogs. Today, though, there's really only one MP3 that any reasonable person need be concerned with — this one (in keeping with the spirit of Right-Click, we urge you to download it five times). For no reason that we can tell, pit-stained party animal Andrew W.K. has written a song with lyrics taken directly from the transcript of a recent episode of The McLaughlin Group. The Website for Public Radio International's "Fair Game" has it, and it's pretty terrific.
