“Carry Out” by Timbaland and Justin Timberlake

As a piece of music, this is superb. Unfortunately, the lyric is a lame comedic novelty, rather reminiscent of some of the weaker Weird Al “food” songs (like “Grapefruit Diet”)…the ones that don’t really tell any jokes, but just name-drop a bunch of foods. Given that Timberlake was involved in the biggest and best novelty hit of the previous decade, “Dick In a Box”, I can see what he was thinking with this one, and while it isn’t funny (I mean, at all), the superb beat goes a long way toward making it tolerable.

Verdict: Stupid but catchy, and you could do a lot worse than that for a Pop song circa 2010.
