Dial-A-Song

Posted by purplemary54 on February 13, 2015

Things have been both busy and quiet enough for me to forget to remind everyone about the return of They Might Be Giants brilliant Dial-A-Song.  It’s been back for a few weeks now, and although the songs themselves have been a little hit or miss, I haven’t been disappointed at all.

One of the best parts about the new Internet-era Dial-A-Song is the fact that these are basically music videos.  All the songs are accompanied by appropriate (or completely irrelevant) video, images, and animations.  The other nice thing is that if you miss a week, you can still check out the song because it’s archived on the site.  Neither of those things would have been possible in the original incarnation using a telephone and answering machine.  Yay, technology!

Even if you think TMBG aren’t your cup of tea, you should give Dial-A-Song a try.  Who knows?  You might become one of us.
