I’m making an effort to post fewer passing thoughts of horror and doom, and instead try and find and cultivate the things that I love.
While I do think They Might Be Giants are a singularly incredible band, their tendency towards gloomy songs in an upbeat manner can sometimes pile on sadness upon misery. This might be the single exception in their catalog, and it’s a cover, of course.
This song is amazing. Cub, who wrote the song, are amazing. But they are very clearly from Canada, as no one from NY would write a song like this, unless they were traveling from out of town to play a show where they are well loved.
Here’s to trying to focus on things I like. Please: join me on this journey.
