For the Kids or Just the Kid in You – They Might Be Giants, Video and Mp3

Okay, you decide on this one. It’s cute and educational. They have a new video for Electric Car HERE. I can’t post it because it’s not appropriate for this site. Maybe the mp3 is already crossing that boundary.

I’m all for cute and educational. Lord knows there’s money to be made in the kiddie market, too. But please consider this: They Might Be Giants is full-scale releasing their new 2-disc set, Here Comes Science , 9/22/09 on Idlewild/Disney Sound (9/1@Amazon). Somehow this feels wrong to me in the arena of social consciousness. Not that folks don’t love Disney and all.

Enough cynicism, though. In fact, flip it, and perhaps it’s fantastic – not only do these guys get to make some dough, but they also have the opportunity to spread a bunch of goodness to a ton of people piped into the Disney machine.

Besides, They Might Be Giants writes and sings irresistibly catchy tunes.

Show dates HERE.
