hopefully your new favorite song...basically I'm thinking about each song on here as a sort of musical (stereo) postcard that I'd want to send to all of my friends.

#1 - Dinner Bell

Dinner Bell
by They Might Be Giants
From the Album Apollo 18

So this is #1...why is that? Well, read the about post for one. "Dinner Bell" by They Might Be Giants just happens to be a great song though as well. Like lots of their songs it’s short but good. It will be very tough for me to not put lots of TMBG songs up here but I’ll try to refrain. This song though is very entertaining and I’m sure you can read a lot into it if you want (these are entertaining) but to me it’s just pure fun and I’m not going to try and analyze it beyond the whole Pavlov dog thing. I’m assuming that’s why my friend Katrina liked it (and some of the other songs on the excellent Apollo 18) so much on that trip up to Lincoln a long time ago– she has excellent taste and at the time it made me give the album another listen and made me like it even more. I’m going to do that again tomorrow. The whole album is awesome and I highly recommend it if you like They Might Be Giants at all.

I suspected Katrina was the friend to whom you were referring in the first post. :-)

You know, I don't think I've ever heard any TMBG songs other than the ones on Flood. I don't know why, I've just never owned any other of their albums.
