8 Reasons Why Bill Murray Is a Music Legend

Bill Murray was being his Murray-est at SXSW last week, just further living up the legendary awesomeness that we’ve all come to know and love. Yes, the former Ghostbuster was checking out a bunch of bands and taking selfies with a few lucky peeps.

Bill’s relationship with music is a long, well-documented one. Whether as a fan or a performer, he’s never been shy about showing his love for any and all musical genres. Here are a few of Bill’s best musical moments. This man deserves an honorary Grammy for just being Bill Murray.

8. Bill Murray & Eric Clapton at Crossroads 2007

In this clip, Murray takes the stage and plays “the only song he knows on guitar.” That Clapton guy helps out, but really it’s Bill who’s the rock star here.


7. Clint Eastwood and Bill Murray Make Beautiful Music Together

Clint should spend more time on stage with Bill and less with empty chairs. We can’t remember the last time Clint was this cool.


6. Bill Serenades Wrigley Stadium

If there’s one reason to go to a Cubs game, it’s the hopes that Bill ends up singing to the crowd. In fact, let the team have the day off and let Bill keep singing his weird little heart out.


5. Bill Conducts a Marching Band

Band geeks, rejoice! Murray just made being in a marching band sound a lot more awesome. In fact, he’s such a fan of marching bands that he conducted one not once, but twice. Feel free to use this info to get laid, nerds.


4. Bill “Elvis” Murray

3. Bill Murray Karaoke

Bill’s a bit of a karaoke aficionado. (Remember Lost in Translation?) Here’s a couple clips of the master working his musical mojo.


2. I Will Always Love You, Bill

We will always love Bill’s penchant for insane entrances, but this one takes the cake. Not only is he dressed like Liberace, but he starts singing Whitney Houston. And while none of it makes any kind of sense, it’s still amazing.


1. The Love Theme from Jaws

As great as any Bill Murray musical moment is, none of them come close to the original flavor: Nick The Lounge Singer. We still wish Murray would cut an album as Nick singing random lyrics to made-up covers of legendary movie scores.

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
