"Curl", an anthem for the ice based Olympic sport is a song on Jonathan Coulton's fifth album, Thing a Week Two.


"Curl" was released as the twentieth Thing a Week on February 10th, 2006.

Live appearance[edit]

"Curl" is played occasionally at Jonathan Coulton concerts, usually in colder cities (especially in Minnesota, and a required song for Canadian setlists) where it's more likely there are actually curlers in the audience. When performing with Paul and Storm, they usually accompany Jonathan with full backing vocals.


  • Curling has been an Olympic sport since the 1998 Winter Olympics. Because it was the first time many Americans were seeing the sport, it enjoyed a brief spurt in popularity.



"Curl" is currently only available for purchase in the Jonathan Coulton MP3 Store as an individual track or as part of Thing a Week II. Of course this song is also included as part of the "Everything" playlist.

Downloadable FLAC versions of the above are available in the Jonathan Coulton FLAC Store.


"Thing a Week II" is available for purchase as a CD here.

Other versions[edit]

A karaoke version of "Curl" is available on the Jonathan Coulton Karaoke Store.
