Progrography

They Might Be Giants
Kids in a musical candy store, junk collectors and keepers of the sacred shoebox of Cracker Jack prizes. In the land of Giants, whatever pops into your head could be a perfectly serviceable pop song. It's a given that you won't like everything they do, but the brilliant outbursts ("Don't Let's Start"), tantalizing strands of sublime absurdity ("Birdhouse In Your Soul") and jocular genius ("My Evil Twin") are the kind of candy-coated peanuts that make the popped corn tolerable.
