They Might Be Giants, Through the Years [Nov. 22nd, 2009|12:22 pm]
I've been a fan of They Might Be Giants for a long time now. Since freshman year in high school, I think, when I got their first album.

And they've continued producing good music over the years. Something remarkable, in and of itself.

Their style has changed a bit. In particular, as they've become older (and one of them -- John ;) -- became a parent) they've started to do children's songs. And they're still good.

The only downside is that now I'm getting their songs stuck in my head and walking around the house singing "I can add! Yes, I can add!" to myself over and over. (At least it contains a nifty dancing squirrel.)

Istanbul <> Constantinople

I have the Flood album. I stole it from my Dad when I moved out. I suppose I should return it to him at some point before I leave ;-)

I remember getting "NO!" when it first came out, wondering if TMBG had "Jumped the shark in the kiddie pool", but it was every bit as much fun as the rest of their stuff, and the subsequent kid's records haven't disappointed.

I prefer Person Man myself. Living his life in a garbage can, hit on the head with a frying pan.... Person man.

Hard to Believe.

I was a fan early on... from Flood to Apollo 18... after that... not so much. This latest stuff though is acutally good. :) Glad to see they are "back"

I was recently offered free tickets to go to thier show. And I was very dissapointed in the world, and myself, when the words "I have to do my homework" left my mouth!
