Jon and I have tickets for They Might Be Giants next month. We are so excited to see them in concert again. To get ready, I have been listening to some of my favorite Giant albums. I’ve discovered several lines in those songs I could apply to situations in everyday life.

At work:

“Telephone for Mr. Horrible”
“Someone keeps moving my chair.”
“I’d be fired if that were my job.”

The economy:

“If I was smart, I’d save up for a piece of string and a rock to wind the string around.”

Love life/Dating:

“What’s he like? It’s not important.”
“I could shake my tiny fist and I swear I wasn’t wrong, but what’s the sense in arguing when you’re all alone?”

History:

“Now it’s Istanbul, not Constantinople.”
“Even old New York was once New Amsterdam.”

Self-confidence:

“Be what you’re like. Be like yourself.”

If you haven’t listened to They Might Be Giants before, you should now. They are amazing, and they have produced a number of children’s albums as well. My favorite- No!
