The Else
  • I've been told that a boy is a girl
    This isn't true anywhere in the world
    You got a heart for a head, breakfast in bed

    You got a sally boy candy bar
    And it's driving me out of my car
    You got a sally boy candy bar
    And it's making me mad
    You got a sally boy candy bar
    And it illustrates the way we are

    Never mind the clothes you wear
    Never mind the cross you bear
    None of these things can compare
    When circle gets the square

The Else

After four days passed on this blog without a post from us, … Continue reading

TMBG Unlimited - July

#118 – “Sally Boy Candy Bar” (1983)

A.S.: AGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH L.K.: This fucking song. A.S.: SKJVN;SZKNBSZFG LBNFGH’N EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE L.K.: We should’ve done this yesterday when I had my capslocking excitement! It’s worn off since then! A.S.: I’m trying to recapture the excitement of seeing this pop up in the shuffle. L.K.: I can’t feign keyboard-smashes… Go copy and paste whatever I did yesterday. A.S.: Sorry I was busy watching Mon Oncle at My Mind’s Eye and … Continue reading

O Tannenbaum 7"

#117 – “O Tannenbaum” (1993)

L.K.: God, my iPod loves having this come up on shuffle. A.S.: Really? I guess your iPod wants every day to be Christmas for you. L.K.: Oh yeah, or at least it did until I had to erase all the music from it. It isn’t even a particularly good version of this song though, although it is in fractured phonetic … Continue reading

Lincoln

#116 – “Ana Ng” (1988)

A.S.: Oh boy. L.K.: HOLY SHIT. Can I start this off by saying that this is my favorite TMBG song OF ALL TIME? OF ALL TIME. A.S.: I wouldn’t go so far with that, but it is impossible to deny its greatness. L.K.: It is absolute musical and lyrical perfection. Also it is up there with “Accidents Will Happen” on my … Continue reading

Cast Your Pod To The Wind

#115 – “Sketchy Galore” (2006)

A.S.: Maybe it’s because we haven’t been Song-A-Dayin’ for a couple of days but this song is sounding really good to me today.  Like I’m just diggin’ it more than normal. L.K.: It’s a fun track from the early days of the podcast. I’ve always dug the shifting time signatures. A.S.: Yeah, I feel like this song was partly the … Continue reading

Mink Car

#114 – “I’ve Got A Fang” (2001)

L.K.: I think “strange” is really the only word I have to describe this song. A.S.: Oh yeah.  Shades of the band’s earlier work really find their way into this one, only with a much bigger budget. L.K.: It seems like it’s trying too hard though, unlike the more organic weirdness of the earlier stuff. A.S.: You think … Continue reading

House Of Mayors EP

#113 – “Processional” (1996)

A.S.: Since the technical title of this song is “Processional”, I’ll specify that this is the first “Processional” on the House of Mayors EP L.K.: Not gonna lie, this is my favorite of the three processionals that serve as variations on the main theme of the EP’s title track. A.S.: I’m not sure if this is my favorite or the … Continue reading

John Henry

#112 – “AKA Driver” (1994)

L.K.: Oh I was just thinking about this song earlier, in the wake of the Kanye West “Theraflu” debacle. A.S.: Yep.  Looks like Theraflu won that one. L.K.: Remember kids, you can have brand names in songs, but you just can’t print them. A.S.: The company posted a message saying that they in no way endorsed the song, and then I … Continue reading

Here Come The ABCs

#111 – “D & W” (2005)

A.S.: “I like to watch the sports.” L.K.: This isn’t going to win any songwriting awards, but damn is it cute. A.S.: John Linnell in a dialogue with himself. Can’t go too wrong with that premise. L.K.: He’s got a secret desire to be a voice actor, I’m telling you. At least he can do amusing accents. The D puppet from the video is … Continue reading

The Spine

#110 – “I Can’t Hide From My Mind” (2004)

["I Can't Hide From My Mind" begins 4 minutes, 19 seconds into podcast.] L.K.: It’s kind of a minor song but we still need to radiate the Flans-love today… and all other days, really. A.S.: Yes, happy Flanso de Mayo, everyone! L.K.: You drank Mint Juleps and Mexican beer yesterday… I am not sure what the official Flanso de … Continue reading
