They Might Be Giants

A very long time ago (like about 20 years ago, how scary is that!!), I was introduced to music by They Might Be Giants, in the form of the their album, Flood. I loved it instantly. They were quirky and fun and so different than almost any other music out there. I fell in love. I listened to it on a cassette tape. About ten years later, I upgraded to the cd. I loved every single song on the cd. My favourites were Istanbul and Particle Man, but seriously, I loved them all.

Recently, I was reintroduced to They Might Be Giants all over again. This time however, from my son's new favourite show, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. They sing the opening song and the Hot Dog song at the end of every episode. I should have known that such a great group would someday meld with Disney. Turns out they have a few kids offerings. I downloaded the 123s by They Might Be Giants and instantly fell in love all over again. The best song by far is Seven Days of the Week (I never go to work). Click on it to see the video, it's great. It is just hilarious and it makes Sebastian laugh now too. He is already learning the best songs (his other favourites are Paper Planes and Shut Up and Drive).
