Anyway, awhile ago I was talking to a friend about them, and he asked me what song I liked. According to his theory, everyone has one They Might Be Giants song that they really like, and they usually can't stand any of the others. I'll buy that theory.
Although I haven't listened to everything they've done, I do know that I only liked one song that I listened to. In fact, the reason I didn't listen to more of their songs is because I didn't like so many of them. After ten awful songs, why set yourself up for more pain?
But the song of theirs that I DO like, Istanbul not Constantinople, is quite stupendous. I'm crazy about it. It has fun music and unusual, quirky lyrics. It is also easily lodged in my brain and will begin blaring when I least expect it. Here's the link so you can enjoy the music and its accompanying Loony Toons cartoon.
Now the question is, what is your They Might Be Giants song?
