"Blue Canary in the outlet by the lightswitch
Who watches over you
Make a little birdhouse in your soul.”

If these lyrics sound familiar to you, than you are likely
to enjoy this week’s music pick. In
recent years, the pop/nerd rock band, “They Might Be Giants” has taken a
different direction. Some (myself
included) would argue that they have sold-out, to some degree, to Disney but I
really don’t care. Their music hasn’t
changed, just the audience. “They Might
Be Giants” released their first children’s CD in 2002 with Rounder Records
called simply, “No.”

“No” features 17 songs executed in true TMBG fashion with
super silly lyrics sung in a nasally, sometimes monotonous, voice. The first time my son heard the song, “Robot
Parade,” he sang it incessantly. The
songs are very catchy and easy to learn. They offer no patronizing life lessons, just ridiculous lyrics and
catchy beats. For some mindless,
enjoyable fun in the car or the kitchen, “No” is the perfect choice.
