    man, you didn't put up any of their absolutely excellent songs. i mean, i like istanbul as much as the next dude, but only because of memories of tiny toons. i wouldn't be blasting that shit. TMBG made a lot of great pop songs with catchy hooks and some actual heartfelt lyrics before they fell into being a geek/children rock band. their music videos from the late 80s were made on a shoestring budget and were actually so much more fresh and more stylish than most of the cheesy ass shit that came out in those days. check these out:

    4 bucks?
    SOLD.

    Like They Might Be Giants, but I don't have as much of their stuff as I should.

    Oh, and I assume everyone here has heard their cover of Tubthumping? They just did that.

    Man, I love TMBG too! Weirdly enough I just put some of my old favourites back onto my iPod.

    If I link this just like so is it going to ruin my life? I haven't linked a youtube video on the new forums yet.

    I've always suspected I'd love TMBG but I never really made a concerted effort to get into them.

    Gonna explore this thread in depth tomorrow.

    True TMBG-related story:

    I was at the same TMBG show in Ann Arbor as my best friend a year before I met him! That was in 2001 and we're still best friends! Coincidence? Obviously not.

    Also true TMBG story: Listening to New York City is 100% guaranteed to cheer you up unless you are an automaton.

    They had a free show in Philly years ago that me and my friend went to. I high-fived Flans except we both were wearing giant foam fingers that said They Might Be Giants on them

    Of course, he carried it a bit too far. He thought that every windmill was a giant. That's insane. But, thinking that they might be... Well, all the best minds used to think the world was flat. But, what if it isn't? It might be round. And bread mold might be medicine. If we never looked at things and thought of what they might be, why, we'd all still be out there in the tall grass with the apes.

    Just downloaded this!

    So far Can't Keep Johnny Down is really good

    and as long as we're posting lyrics of theirs that we like:

    Did a large procession wave their torches as my head fell in the basket?
    And was everybody dancing on the casket?
    Now it's over, I'm dead and I didn't do anything that I want
    Or I'm still alive, and there's nothing I want to do

    Been listening to it on repeat all afternoon

    I think Can't Keep Johnny Down, When Will You Die, and Canajoharie are my favorites

    Judy is Your Viet Nam is really good too but it's too short! There's a few songs of theirs that I'd like a lot better if they were about a minute longer. Sapphire Bullets of Pure Love is another one that comes to mind.

    You Don't Like me isn't a bad song but usually the last song of their albums is one of the best ones so it's a little disappointing that it's just kinda ho-hum.
