Tuesday Tunes: They Might Be Giants


Here’s a little fun pick-me-up for your Tuesday! They Might Be Giants hold a special place in my heart because their song I’ve Got a Match (I couldn’t find a video…) was the first song I ever learned to play on the accordion. It was a duet with my friend for our work’s Christmas party talent show a few years ago- I should really try to find the video of that… They have a cult following and although I’m not their biggest fan, their music is really fun.

In my typography class we recently had to express part of a song using emphasis in type and minimal images, and I chose the TMBG song Birdhouse in Your Soul so I could do something colorful and playful. It’s a little hard to see at such a small size but you can follow along with the video :)

Hope your having a good week! If you’re in the States- one more day before a long weekend! Yay!

    I love They Might Be Giants and Birdhouse in Your Soul is my favourite of theirs. Needless to say, I LOVE the project you did!! It totally captures the fun whimsy comfort of the tune.

    And I kind of can’t believe you didn’t post the video of Aunt Vivian and Olive singing Birdhouse, in Pushing Daisies!! It’s just so perfect. Here’s a link if you’ve not seen it (the show is incredible and sadly short lived!!) Pushing Daisies Clip
