10 Minutes to perturbation and transmutation.

My original intent with this hub blog article was to try and write a fast, creative, off-the-cuff-if-you-will pool of verbiage unabashed by contrivances and other syllabic trappings in order to more Modernly and thus more succinctly interpret this great song by those Johns of genius in They Might Be Giants. Interpretation of rock songs is a game many of us play, and usually only the writers' themselves know what' the actual meaning is. Sometimes the myth, as in James Taylor's "Fire & Rain" gets more mileage than the truth!

Now that all the video and various capsules are in place, I will interpret these renderings with a fresh ear and eye hitherto!!!



This is the spawing of the cage and aquarium

To me this song has always meant that creativity and profundity are aligned on the same plane.


The next video of John Flansburgh and John Linnell is impenetrable in its lack of video quality while remaining true to it's audio fidelity. How else you expecta we de-liver you some They Might Be A Giantsa! Ah!

2 John & John's 1 YouTube

Time to get freaky Atari style

I guess at some point, or so the song would point out as your plane goes down in flames, you are used to what comes with your notoriety.

WTF. I had an ATARI 2600, we never had this much fun with an Atari 2600

It is settled then, They Are Giants, indeed, insong

Used to be different now you're the same....

Maybe this collection is only a strange diatribe to a hooked-out-nasally-infused-accordianly-rendered tune, but there it is if it is.




I hope that I get old before I die and Cage and Aquarium con piano

Lyrics For They Might Be Giants' Cage And Aquarium

Somebody's reading your mind
Damned if you know who it is
they're digging through all of your files
Stealing back your best ideas
You cover your windows with lead
Even keeping the pets outside
Then you hear a moment too late this sound coming over the phone

This is the spawning of the cage and aquarium
Don't wait a moment too soon
Used to be different, now you're the same
Yawn as your plane goes down in flames
this is the spawning of the cage and aquarium
Don't wait a moment too soon
Used to be different, now you're the same
Yawn as your plane goes down in flames

      Me 2 cdub77!!!

      Cow Town also is one of my all time favorites. Take that kid on your shoulders to one of their adult shows, it's just as good as the regular adult version~

      Cheers!

      I love TMBG! "Cow Town" often gets stuck in my head... It's been a favorite for more years than I care to count.

      Mike! Hahaha, thanks man. This one's been "incomplete" for a few weeks now. I tried to write the meat of the analsys as fast as I could but it took a few days to find the right videos. Thanks for being a rock!

      "They're digging through all of their files, stealing back your best ideas!"

      Cheers man,
