    #3: Frou Frou: is it called "Let Go"?

    It's the Frou Frou song from Garden State dammit. I think (hope) that's the name.

  • Yes Lost Clown, it is Frou Frou's Let Go. I'm glad you figured it out. I wasn't trying to make you crazy. I'm miserably awful at this game, by the way, because I can never remember song titles to anything. I know the song after 3 beats, but I can't think of the damned name.
