A GUIDE TO THE NEW MP3s on THEYMIGHTBEGIANTS.COM Words Are Like This track is from our "They Got Lost" rarities collection, only available at TMBG concerts and on line at http://store.yahoo.com/tmbg-catalog/ Originally part of the 2001 Unlimited program with EMusic, this track features Robin "Goldie" Goldwasser on the drums and harmony vocal.Your Mom's Alright with Mike Doughty. We put this track together with Doughty and the Elegant Too. It's on foreign versions of Mink Car, but we bring it to you directly here as a gift of love via the miracle of the internet. Ant This is the original Dial-A-Song version, and is a longtime favorite among the hard-core. It has that fragile demo quality that is so hard to ever capture again. Currently only available here. Feast of Lights This is a special Chanukah song, and is featured on our special EP "They Might be Giants in Holidayland." Although we like to think it is available in stores, it's much more likely you'll find it the 5-song EP
http://store.yahoo.com/tmbg-catalog/. Concrete and Clay This is another Dial-A-Song recording- a cover of the Unit 4+2's UK hit from the 60s. This was cooked up at the behest of producer Clive Langer, who is a big fan of the song, as a possible holiday release in the UK but missed the deadlines and then slipped off the radar.
