If you ever get bored come knock on my door

Gaw rightly remarks on the child-and-parent-pleasing musical stylings of They Might Be Giants, whose album/DVD Here Come the 1-2-3s has held the number one spot in the Brit household for some 10 consecutive months now. Every tune is an ear-python and lyrics include "Everybody at the party is a multi-sided polygon" and "The definition of zero is the mathematical value between positive and negative values". I firmly believe that you should frequently talk way over the heads of infants and striplings; it gives them something to aspire to.

Here Come the 1-2-3s also includes this, which is the most beautiful song ever written about noisy neighbours. Possibly the most beautiful song written about anything.
