I’ve Been Leaving On My Things…

Bonus points to anyone who gets that reference before I go ahead and explain it.  (These are honor system bonus points.)

It may be noted that I am a huge nerd, but I’ve been wanting to post this song forever – it seems like a good little Friday evening post, because let’s face it, I’m not so much of a nerd that I would prefer to spend my whole Friday night on the computer, I’ve got better things to do like drink beer on the couch with my husband and I’m going to stop now before this sentence reaches Proustian lengths.

I find it unbelievable that there are only two YouTube videos dedicated to this They Might Be Giants classic, one a live version from 1992, and the other this fan video, which is clearly the product of a significant amount of effort (and which has better sound).  Enjoy!

So what’s your favorite food song?

Aha, now I have you talking about Proust 😉 I like They Might Be Giants, but I didn’t know that one. Definitely a good foodie song! I’ll have to think if I have any fav food songs…

How great! No bonus points for me, I’m afraid. The only They Might Be Giants song I know is the one that was the theme song for Malcolm in the Middle. Then, my much younger friend who is a Big Fan of TMBG played her “favorite” song of theirs. And it’s a remake of a song that I’ve known forever and that my mom knew before me: Istanbul (not Constantinople) She was a little surprised that it was a cover version (although a very good cover version).

As to my favorite food song–well, I kinda like the apple strudel/schnitzel w/noodle couplet from My Favorite Things. Does that count? Then, there’s always the classic “Shoefly Pie and Apple Pandowdy” song. 🙂

Hope you had a great weekend!

Hopie – Not only that, but (sort of) writing like him, too!

pastrychef – I knew Istanbul was a cover of an old song, but I’ve never heard the original! Glad you enjoyed the cover.

Ack. I stage managed The Sound of Music twice in high school. If I never hear another song from it again, it will be too soon. But you’re entitled to your favorites. 🙂
