theme song for December. particularly the dreaded twelfth of December.
OH HEY MY BIRTHDAY’S IN DECEMBER TOO. Also, I am quite amused by “Older” at the kids’ shows etc. “LET’S INSTILL THE FEAR OF MORTALITY IN THOSE KIDS EARLY.”
These are things you need to know.
They Might Be Giants - Certain People I Could Name
Favorite TMBG song at the moment.
OMGGGGGGGG I was listening to this on the plane today for like 2 hours. Count the arms, the legs and heads and then divide by five.
Certain People I Could Name - from Long Tall Weekend.
TMBG Thursday. I love the guitar riff on the chorus. As well as the lyrics.
Count the arms the legs and heads and then divide by five.
Older - They Might Be Giants
I don’t even remember where I got this, but this is a demo recording of Older. In my opinion it’s the best version of this song. I’d like to point out the opening, guitar with a wonderful bass counterpart, the overall aggressiveness of the song, and the deliciously awkward keyboard solo near the end. Anyway, just listen.
My sources tell me this is in fact a radio performance although no one seems to know where or when (I was wondering how there was a demo around I didn’t know about!), but it’s pretty cool at any rate. LOL @ “deliciously awkward keyboard solo.”
