Talk:Nanobots (Song)

From This Might Be A Wiki

Out of curiosity I edited this song down to about 45 seconds to get an idea of how it would sound as a theme to a TV show (Link) I can't help but think it'd make a great theme song to a kids cartoon or something --McBob 02:17, 8 March 2013 (EST)

nice rating. - fork (talk) 20:27, 26 July 2021 (EDT)

best song from the album[edit]

Better than You're On Fire by a landslide. - HotelDetectiveInTheFuture๐Ÿช— talk ๐ŸŽธ

I think You're On Fire, Stone Cold Coup D'Etat, and possible Icky are all better. TitanicFog (talk) 00:29, 17 June 2022 (EDT)
I agree about Stone Cold Coup and Icky, but You're On Fire is one of my least favorite TMBG songs. The best song on the album, though, is Sometimes A Lonely Way. Why does no one talk about that one? --ColorOfInfinity (talk) 02:19, 17 June 2022 (EDT)
Ooh, that's probably one of my least favorite on the album. TitanicFog (talk) 02:52, 17 June 2022 (EDT)
Oh, come on! That's my favorite Flansburgh sad song on streaming services! I think the Nanobots album overall is just a series of hits and misses. My favorites are You're On Fire, Circular Karate Chop, Call You Mom, Stone Cold Coup D'Etat, Sometimes A Lonely Way, Too Tall Girl, and Icky, not in that order.--You&Me!!

Nanobots is probably my least favorite TMBG album actually, it has some good songs but it also has more bad songs than other TMBG albums (You're On Fire, Replicant, The Darlings Of Lumberland, Stuff Is Way, and most of the short songs). --ColorOfInfinity (talk) 19:47, 17 June 2022 (EDT)
It's my 2nd least favorite behind LTW. Same problem you have with Nanobots, where there's some good songs but a lot of bad stuff. Lowkey have always hated Older, as well as Counterfeit Faker, the album version of They Got Lost, Token Back To Brooklyn, The Edison Museum, (She Thinks She's) Edith Head and especially On Earth My Nina.--You&Me!! (talk) 20:57, 17 June 2022 (EDT)
I prefer the Mink Car version of Older, since Flans doesn't growl on "Time" in that version. --ColorOfInfinity (talk) 23:52, 17 June 2022 (EDT)
Honestly, I'm not sure which one I dislike more. It depends on if I wanted Flansburgh's growl or shitty horns.--You&Me!! (talk) 12:34, 18 June 2022 (EDT)
Older (Podcast Version) is far superior. Also the Nanobots album is underrated. - HotelDetectiveInTheFuture๐Ÿช— talk ๐ŸŽธ
The horns really kill the song for me TitanicFog (talk) 14:07, 18 June 2022 (EDT)
I like the horns, but I'm also more used to that version than the LTW version since LTW is so rare. (Also, maybe this discussion should be moved to the Older talk page?) --ColorOfInfinity (talk) 20:31, 18 June 2022 (EDT)
The LTW one is the one on all the compilations iirc :P also LTW > Mink Car and I'm glad I got the LTW CDs when I did TitanicFog (talk) 20:47, 18 June 2022 (EDT)
Mink Car has Hopeless Bleak Despair though. ((Also @You&Me!! re: your favorite/least favorite songs, isn't the LTW version of Edith Head more screamed than the Mink Car version?) --ColorOfInfinity (talk) 23:54, 18 June 2022 (EDT)
Exactly TitanicFog (talk) 00:44, 19 June 2022 (EDT)
Personally, for me, LTW is my least favorite album, but Mink Car is #4 best for me. As for the She Thinks She's Edith Head, I guess I should state the fact that, just like Older, I dislike both versions of the song.--You&Me!! (talk) 16:24, 19 June 2022 (EDT)
Long Tall Weekend is 13/26 for me, Mink Car is 14. TitanicFog (talk) 16:47, 19 June 2022 (EDT)
Hmm. What are your top 5? Mine are The Else, The Spine, I Like Fun, Mink Car, and John Henry.--You&Me!! (talk) 16:55, 19 June 2022 (EDT)
1. Apollo 18, Flood, Lincoln, Pink Album, Misc T 16:58, 19 June 2022 (EDT)
Oh! If we're including rarities albums as part of the mix, then technically LTW wouldn't be the worst album; They Got Lost would.You&Me!! (talk)
Most of They Got Lost was already released on albums and stuff :P idk Misc T is definitely more of an album to me than They Got Lost. CYPTTW and ARN&TQ too. TitanicFog (talk) 17:17, 19 June 2022 (EDT)
My top 5 are 1: Apollo 18, 2: Lincoln, 3: Flood, 4. The Else, 5. Pink. -HotelDetectiveInTheFuture๐Ÿช— talk ๐ŸŽธ
Mine would be 1: I Like Fun 2: John Henry 3: The Spine 4: Factory Showroom 5: Lincoln. Also I think ARNATQ is less of an album since half of it is alternate versions of previously released songs. --ColorOfInfinity (talk) 18:38, 19 June 2022 (EDT)
Currently, I'm mad at both CYPTTW and ARNATQ, ARNATQ for having a really bad cover of a really good Pixies song and CYPTTW for not including Diving Board. (ALSO WE REALLY SHOULD MOVE THIS TO ANOTHER PAGE WE'VE GONE COMPLETELY OFF-TOPIC)--You&Me!! (talk) 11:08, 20 June 2022 (EDT)
I don't think another page is going to solve anything, rather you should probably consider a more appropriate discussion forum for ranking favorites like the TMBG Jail Discord. -CapitalQtalk ♪ 12:49, 20 June 2022 (EDT)
Hi, does there happen to be a new invite link for this discord? I didn't end up clicking it till now. --ColorOfInfinity (talk) 00:36, 14 October 2022 (EDT)
Invites are currently closed for right now, since we got a harasser from someone inviting them. I'll let you know when invites become a thing again.--You&Me!! (talk) 09:25, 14 October 2022 (EDT)
