“Everything You Know is Wrong”, is Al's loving tribute to They Might Be Giants. It's one of those songs where Al gets everything right. According to Al: My They Might Be Giants homage. What can I say about that? TMBG is one of my favorite groups. I know they don’t like the association with novelty music, but I’ve always admired their quirkiness. I tried to write a song sort of in their style, but perhaps even a little bit more twisted, and for fans of The Giants I put little references in here and there, little allusions to other songs of theirs, and I’m proud of that because it’s one of those songs where I think it definitely sounds like them, but it’s hard to pinpoint exactly which song it sounds like. A lot of my pastiches are like, “Oh that’s sort of like this song mixed with that song,” and this one is a little bit harder I think to decipher exactly where the inspiration is coming from.
