When is the last time that you listened to "Comforter" by Shai? I mean, seriously listened to it? If you last listened to it in 1994, like I did, then the greatness in this song likely probably maybe certainly didn't register to you, because chances are you were dancing to it at your 7th grade dance and "I wonder if she can tell that I'm hard right now" was the only thing going through your head.
As such, I wish to take time out to do an unscripted Unsung if you will.
A Decoded for a thinly coded song. Because in all the time we spent listening to this song, singing this song, plagiarizing this song and dancing to this song, we never thought about this song and what it really was.
One of the greatest Simp/Friend Zone* songs ever. In fact, it is actually part of a set. A trilogy if you will.

This is Single Simulcast.
*As I have evolved, I realize that the friend zone is simply a myth set up by men who are rejected by women. However, when you hear this episode, you'll understand.
