1999 - Cowtown Medley
From This Might Be A Wiki
|song name||1999 / Cowtown|
|artist||They Might Be Giants|
|releases||TMBG Unlimited - July, DialASong.com (2000-2006)|
|sung by||John Flansburgh, John Linnell|
- This recording is a live medley circa 1985. TMBG plays both "1999" (a loose cover of the Prince song) and "Cowtown" back to back.
- John Linnell in a 1990 Press-Courier interview:
We've done a lot of covers live. [...] Once we did a jazz swing version of '1999' by Prince, and people thought we were just making a reference to it. They didn't think we were trying to play it.
- This performance of Cowtown most closely resembles the "Original Demo" recording of the song, rather than the versions heard on the 1985 Demo Tape or the 1985 Promotional Demo Tapes, suggesting that this performance may possibly predate these tapes.
