The first time I ever herad TMBG was on Tiny Toons but I was much to young to appreciate them. Later in high school I was completely tired of factory produced songs on the radio. After seeing TMBG on Pen and Teller's Sin City Spectacular playing Doctor Worm and They Got Lost I felt refreshed and went and bought their Severe Tire Damage album immediately. I loved that album and wanted to hear studio recordings of all the songs so I ended up buying all the other albums and have loved Giants' music ever since.
Favorite Flansburgh Song
- Idlewild--this is such a pretty song with great vocal production.
Favorite Linnell Song
- Museum Of Idiots--the brass that follows the lyric lines is so extraordinarily striking it brings a quite emotional appeal with equally great lyrics.
All-Time Favorite Song
- Doctor Worm--classic tmbg tune with their great living band. i don't think there are any electronic noises at all. stunningly well produced.
Favorite TMBG Album
