17 Jan 2012, 20:35 by patteroastYeah, I think I like this enough to keep it up for the other artists that I have multiple albums by. I started with Barenaked Ladies, and now I'm moving on to They Might Be Giants. I don't have the kids' albums, but I did recently finish my collection of all the other studio albums.
They Might Be Giants (1986):
Favorite Song: She's An Angel
"I met someone at the dog show/she was holding my left arm/But everyone was acting normal/so I tried to look nonchalant/We both said, 'I really love you'/The Shriners loaned us cars/We raced up and down the sidewalk/twenty thousand million times..."
Runners Up: Don't Let's Start, Hide Away Folk Family, Put Your Hand Inside The Puppet Head
Least Favorite: Toddler Hiway
Favorite Song: Ana Ng
"Make a hole with a gun perpendicular/to the name of this town in a desktop globe/Exit wound in a foreign nation/Showing the home of the one this was written for..."
Runners Up: Mr. Me, Purple Toupee, Cowtown
Least Favorite: You'll Miss Me
2 Dec 2007, 07:15 by jadeybeansWell, I always seem to make a journal when I can't sleep. Today, I found my first They Might Be Giants CD, one that my brother burned for me back in 2004-2005. Ah, the memories. I thought I'd give you guys the tracklisting. It's kind of cool to think that these were all the TMBG songs I had up till March'06 when I found "A User's Guide To They Might Be Giants" in a CDPlus downtown. How I ever survived with out TMBG, I'll never know. Well, here they are. Feel free to take notice that some of them aren't even by TMBG.
2-Am I Awake?
3-Exquisite Dead Guy
4-Birdhouse in Your Soul
5-Bastard Wants To Hit Me
6-Nothing's Gonna Change My Clothes
7-Boss of Me
9-Istanbul (Not Constantinople)
13-Stalk Of Wheat

14 Jul 2007, 08:11 by raceofdoominspired from a recent post by someone else here, i'm going to quickly put together my own top 20 They Might Be Giants songs. this of course means nothing, as tomorrow they will probably not even be on the list, with others not on the list now replacing them. how nerdy! (oh, none in order, except for the top two at the bottom. doing it in order would drive me insane.)
They'll Need A Crane
Four of Two
We Want a Rock
Narrow Your Eyes
I Should Be Allowed to Think
Statue Got Me High
She's An Angel
Someone Keeps Moving My Chair
I Palindrome I
Put Your Hand Inside The Puppet Head

21 Apr 2006, 04:48 by alfvaenBack on my old Blogspot blog, when I was still using that, I was trying to do a countdown of my favourite songs. At the time it was 750, and now it's closer to 1000. By "favourite songs", I'm referring to an ever-growing batch of tapes that I've made of songs that I like. I listen to them, and sing along to them, on my drives to and from work, so I get to know them fairly well. Among my favourites, of course, there are some that I like better than others, but it's a lot of work to try to produce something like an ordered list. Instead, I'm going to try to do them by artist, or in semi-random clusters when there's only one song I like by an artist. There's also always more songs that I'm sure will become favourites later on, that I just haven't noticed yet.
I'm not particularly good at describing music in words(as the quote says, "Writing about music is like dancing about architecture"), so I'll probably spend as much time just rambling about my particular history with the artists…
