Music:The Decemberists - Here I Dreamt I Was An Architect
I've figured out why How I Met Your Mother is infinitely better than Friends ever was: a constant antagonist that you can't help but love. Who did the cast of Friends have? The naked guy? Gunther? Ross? Barney provides a villain and comedy relief, all in one. It helps that HIMYM doesn't take itself nearly as seriously and is much more clever.
