#101 – “Crushed By Dust” (2011)


L.K.: Oh god, I forgot how much I hate this. This is a total non-song. This makes me long for the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse theme song. A.S.: Whoa, watch what you say there. See, having not heard it in a while, and taking it out of context from the Adventure Quest Worlds thing, it just sounds like a … Continue reading

#99 – “What Is Everyone Staring At?” (????)


A.S.: For as much as I love this song, I can really understand why it’s remained unreleased. L.K.: Well, it’s probably because it later was released, albeit with a completely new set of lyrics and a missing segment of music!

[audio http://www.theymightbegiants.com/mp3/boston.mp3] L.K.: The infamous lost venue song, right?

#40 – “Mrs. Cinderella” (19???)


L.K.: Aww, one of those weird little Dial-A-Song numbers that never progressed beyond the answering machine. A.S.: A good song at that.  One with some sad-sack Flansburghian lyrics, perfect for Valentine’s Day! L.K.: Musically it’s pretty simple, lyrically it’s pretty incomprehensible… perhaps it was a good thing this song got left behind. There’s obviously some sort of reference to … Continue reading

#1 – “Countdown Intro” (1988)


A.S.: It’s just perfect that this is the first thing that popped up in the shuffle.  It really couldn’t have been a more suitable selection. L.K.: God, I love this. A.S.: They assume we have nine toes. L.K.: What other band would start a show like this?  This is such a quintessentially early TMBG thing since it’s so damn weird… “Professor … Continue reading
