From This Might Be A Wiki
|song name||I'm Having a Heart Attack|
|artist||They Might Be Giants|
|first played||September 13, 1992 (8 known performances)|
|sung by||John Linnell|
- This is Fingertips song #19.
- In concert, Flansburgh often adds NKOTB-like lyrics between the main lines of the song. One example: "Girl you know it's true / H-E-A-R-T attack to you, girl / And if I should die before we freak / Know that I will always love you".
- In concert, when performing Fingertips, Linnell sometimes acts as if he's having a heart attack. Everybody laughs, but Flans says, "Don't laugh, he really is having a heart attack!"
- Although TMBG only started performing Fingertips in its entirety in 2000, this vignette was being played separately as early as 1992 (e.g. the infamous October 10, 1992 show).
