Song: Yeh Yeh
Artist: They Might Be Giants
Favorite Lyric: And then she asks me why don’t I come to her flat
And have some supper and let the evening pass by
Playing records, the sounds of groovy hi-fi
I say yeah yeah, that’s what I say, I say yeah yeah
Significance: They Might Be Giants was a very influential band to me when I was a teenager. So influential I almost never listen to them anymore. This cover of a 1965 hit by Georgie Fame is an exception. Incidentally, a while back I heard an episode of Slate’s “Working” podcast in which John Flansburgh, half of the main TMBG duo, was interviewed. It was enlightening.
