#94 – “I Walk Along Darkened Corridors” (1992)

Apollo 18

L.K.: Another Fingertip, woohoo. But one of the most epic of all “Fingertips”! A.S.: The dramatic conclusion to “Fingertips”! L.K.: This is THE go-to “Fingertip” for Dan Miller guitar pyrotechnics. A.S.: At least whenever they play it live. L.K.: Also for ridiculous over the top vocals from Linnell, again, during live shows. A.S.: Yeah, for an extremely basic I-IV-V chord progression, they … Continue reading

#45 – “Cyclops Rock” (2001)

Mink Car

L.K.: Similar to “Clap Your Hands”, different sections of the fanbase seem to have pretty different opinions about this song, and … Continue reading

#29 – “What Is A Shooting Star?” (2001)

TMBG Unlimited - April

L.K.: Thanks to this song, we know that it is not a star at all. A.S.: It’s just a meteor heading for a fall. This song has a somewhat interesting history, given that it’s probably most often heard as part of Here Comes Science but was recorded and first released much earlier.
