Theme from "Flood"

January 11, 2015 10:47 PM

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!

Brilliant! This is absolutely perfect, not_on_display. This is the opening track we need, want, and deserve!

Yaaaay! It came out a lot like what it was sounding like in my head, except my Tom Waits/Louis Armstrong knob seemed to be stuck on 11. But that was acceptable to me. It was a lot of fun thinking this one up, and I'm very glad you liked it!

This is great - like the tomwaitishness of it all!

Just coming back to say this is my totally favourite new thing.

I like this so much.

If I had to use known quantities to describe it, it's like Tom Waits, Neil Young, and Morrissey in some tremolo-and-whisky-soaked embrace.

This somehow makes me think of the opening of a heretofore undeveloped Muppet movie!
