I love them and see them live whenever possible. My wife was in a choir down at Lincoln Center and actually got to sing with them in concert. Of course I was busy and had to miss it.

Anyway, so as not to disrupt the order of things:

I could never sleep my way to the top, cuz my alarm clock always wakes me right up!

That is so not cool.

It was very anti-cool. She did hook me up, though. She got them to sign all sorts of stuff for me.

A woman came up to me and said I'd like to change your mind,
With wrong ideas that appeal to you, though I am not unkind,
She looked at me, I looked at something written across her scalp,
And these are the words it said to me as I faintly cried for help.

There's only one thing that I know how to do well
And I've often been told that you only can do what you know how to do well
And that's be you!
Be what you're like!
Be Like yourself!
And so I'm having a wonderful time but I'd rather be whistling in the dark!

Im 20 and people my age often give me a raised eyebrow when I say TMBG is an amazing band. Mainly becuase they never even heard of them. My brother in law got me hooked on all this band that came out in the late 80s' to early 90s' and TMBG has always been one of my favs.

Meet James Ensor.
Belgium's famous painter.
Dig him up and shake his hand.
Appreciate the man.

The sun is a mass of incandescant gas
A gigantic nuclear furnace!
Where hydrogen converts into Helium
At a temperature that's millions of degrees!

Memo to myself:
Do the dumb things I gotta do
Touch the puppet head

The sun is a mass of incandescant gas
A gigantic nuclear furnace!
Where hydrogen converts into Helium
At a temperature that's millions of degrees!

The sun is hot
The sun is not
A place where we could live
But here on Earth there'd be no life without the light it gives

I already know the ending
It's the part that makes your face implode.
I don't know what makes your face implode
But that is how the movie ends.

(I'll be very surprised if none of you have seen this, but here! :^))

Full bottle in front o' me
Time to roll up my sleeves and get to work
And after many glasses... of work
I get paid

They Might Be Giants are my very favourite band! They are one of the reasons I started playing piano accordian.

Oranges, Oranges, Oranges and graphic design, the chopping block spend their time growing oranges, and picking oranges and working on graphic design...

Also, have you seen the awesome bloodmobile animated video clip?

I don't understand you. I just don't understand you. I don't understand the things you say. I can not understand a single word.

(That's even better if you imagine Shatner singing it, ala Kirk.)

Turning to drugs to help you sleep
Will only lead to sleep.
And Sleeping is a gateway drug
To being awake
Being awake
Being Awake again...

Harold Atari's inner voice: They might be monitoring it!
Joel: They Might Be Giants!
Tom: Huh?

TMBG is one of my absolute favorites, too. I saw them in Tucson on the Venue Songs tour. I will never forget that show; they really made it special. I'd always wanted a recording of a concert I had attended, and they made recordings of every show on that tour and had them available from the website. Not only did they do that, but they also wrote a song just for us! It's called City Limits and it's sweet. As part of their encore, Flans brought out a radio that was wired to the sound system. Once he found a station he and the band quickly picked up the tune and played along with it! Then he changed stations and they played along to that song! And thusly they repeated several times in quick succession. That was a whole lot of fun.
