They Might Be Giants–a quirky band if ever there was one. I remember seeing them on TV somewhere before I’d ever heard them on the radio and thinking, “Who are these guys?” They make me think, which is good, and they make me smile, which is even better. This song contains what may be the only use of the word ‘filibuster’ in musical history.
Now, I’m having one of those weird moments where I really feel like I’ve done this post before. I poked around and couldn’t find it, so if it’s an inadvertent rerun, you have my apologies.
Not my kind of music, but bonus points for the word filibuster. That's like AC/DC's For Those About to Rock – bonus points for using an actual cannon.
Quirky is good – the world needs quirky! 🙂
I have never seen or heard of them, but I have a feeling I'll be listening to that song in my head all day long now! 🙂
I still listen to mostly '80's music, so I hear that one from time to time. I always liked that line. 🙂
It's a fun listen.
Nice song, quirky indeed. And yes, filibuster isn't exactly the most popular word in music.
Every time I think about They Might Be Giants, I get "Istanbul" stuck in my head. It's just so–
Gah! It happened again. LOL
i love them! i'm all for a bit of quirky music.
I love this song! TMBG is such a fun and quirky band–the world needs more music like theirs.
You're welcome! Ha hah!
And they're still going strong! Thanks for commenting!
They've managed to remain quirky and original for a long time!
That's a cool word, an interesting song, and a really weird music video! Haha 🙂
Glad you liked it.
Funny how videos and tunes like this burrow into your head. Here's another that for the life of me I can't figure out why I like… but dang it, I really do get a kick out of it….!
