They Might Be Giants

Here is my take on TMBG for the Metafilter Flood Album! More novelty than novelty, that's my motto (apparently). This is not at all what I had in mind for this somehow. [more inside]

Theme from "Flood"

Why is the world about to fall in love all over again? Why will we be marching hand in hand? Why are the ocean levels still rising up? It's a brand new record for 2015: MetaFilter's cover of They Might Be Giants' classic album, Flood!

Hot Cha

It's They Might Be Giant's Hot Cha for the MetaFilter Flood cover album. And, yes, it goes a bit strange at times.

Crash Into Mr Xcitement

Mashup I made for fun, had laying around on my hard drive, and remembered while reading this thread. The tracks are "Crash" from Gwen Stefani's "Love. Angel. Music. Baby." (written by her and Tony Kanal) and "Mr. Xcitement" from They Might Be Giant's "Mink Car" (and featuring Mike Doughty on vocals.) What I like about it is that neither track is an acapella track, and that both singers (like both music tracks) are overlapping throughout, but it still works -- other than a tempo (but *not* pitch) change to speed up "Crash" and a few measure movements/cuts, no other changes were necessary. Note that release of the TMBG/Doughty track predates the Stefani track, and that I cut off the spoken word intro and painfully long musical ending of the TMBG track (which the Stefani track did not overlap) to save you all download time.

Ana Ng (acoustic)

This is an acoustic cover of the wonderful TMBG song Ana Ng, done on a four track recorder many years ago. Though I did once see "I don't want the world, I just want your half" painted on a bridge (it was really surprising and cool to discover), we substituted "Homies '88" in its place because we had recently seen that on a bridge and thought it a bit absurd that someone took the time and effort to paint such a doofy message.

Welcome to the Jungle (acoustic)

This is an acoustic cover of the very excellent They Might Be Giants song Welcome to the Jungle. As a gag, the beginning instrumental bit copies the Guns N' Roses song Welcome to the Jungle. Though my old "band" did this, just about every instrument on this track (including the backup vocals) was done by one bandmember.
