I’ve been geeking out this week to They Might Be Giants and OK Go! There’s something freeing about not worrying what others think, isn’t there? These bands’ enthusiasm is contagious, so get yer geek on with me!
TMBG’s Istanbul (not Constantinople) is another earworm (again, you’re welcome) but the lyrics are surprisingly thoughtful. “Why they’d change it? I can’t say, people just liked it better that way”, reminds us that change is inevitable… can you imagine saying you’re going to the Big Apple, New Amsterdam?
And OK Go’s Here It Goes Again is another creative take that combines music and treadmills. As if making music and dancing isn’t hard enough, they combine this with 8 moving platforms. I like their willingness to take on a challenge. 😀
Have a great weekend!
