Giants are Perfect for Little Ones

giantsWhen I was a student here at the UW, one of my roommates sophomore year would constantly play music from a band called They Might Be Giants.   I liked a lot of the music because it was rather unusual.  Okay, that's really an understatement.  They were really weird, but also really good. I remember hearing songs like Chess Piece Face and Particle Man.  The lyrics were down right silly.  Here are a few lines from Chess Piece Face: What's gonna happen to Chess Piece Face There go I but for my face All I know could be defaced by the facts in the life of Chess Piece Face I don't know where he lives Or if he knows to sail Or if little schemes like this one ever cross his trail But I don't believe he's dreaming Or if he cares to know So I shudder* in my lampshade So, what's gonna happen to Chess Piece Face There I go but for my face All I know could be defaced by the facts in the life of Chess Piece Face Chess Piece Face Chess Piece Face Chess Piece Face It doesn't really make a lot of sense or perhaps there is some deeper meaning I was missing.  No, it probably just doesn't make any sense.  These days the guys from They Might Be Giants are focusing on kids and making kids albums.  Gabby brought in some new music from the guys on Thursday morning.  You can click here to hear it plus new music from Norah Jones.
