|artist||They Might Be Giants|
|releases||TMBG Unlimited - February, DialASong.com (2000-2006), They Got Lost, TMBG Clock Radio|
|sung by||John Linnell|
- Performed by TMBG as part of the Brave New World ABC special. This segment was specifically about the NASA robot Surveyor 3's camera, which came back to earth with a micro-organism inside the lens.
- From tmbg.com, "This song was part of the ABC Nightline series that we did. Our assignment was to write a song about a germ that went to the moon and caused quite a bit of confusion at NASA. This song contains a little more existential angst than your average folk song, and probably more than was required."
- This song is also called "Ballad Of The Sneeze", according to the BMI music catalogue.
- In Gigantic, Robert Krulwich mentions that Linnell wrote this song, as best as he can figure, in the space of a few hours (between lunch and dinner).
