I've been listening to the They Might Be Giants Dial-a-Song compilation every day at work. It's not a great compilation, and I usually get burnt out about 3/4 of the way through each disc, but there are so many gems! Maybe if I'd grown up with They Might Be Giants, things would be better. But I didn't. Actually, that's a lie. One of my first musical memories was buying the "Istanbul (Not Constantinople)" cassette single at a garage sale when I was very young, and becoming obsessed with that song. Now, it's "Dr. Worm," which has evolved into a very, very strange persona I've undertaken to amuse my girlfriend. Notably, it involves me wriggling around on the floor trying to crawl out of the bedroom without using my hands.
