so i'm a big fan of a little band called They Might Be Giants. You Might Have Heard of them. maybe you're a fan, like me, in which case you were overjoyed to see C3's TMBG pack hit the front page back in April. but then again, if you're like me, three songs just wasn't enough, and you can't seem to find any more.
so i have a (presumptuous) proposal. if i can get a show of enough hands, i want to author a handful of songs from every TMBG album - at least two from each, with all instruments and all difficulties. i'm open to suggestions on albums i haven't picked from yet, and i'd also very much appreciate help charting (particularly with vocals, though drums are also nice) if anyone would want to. i plan to release some TMBG with or without the support for this idea, but i'm interested to see if enough people would like to have something like this for it to be worth my while.
here's a sample of what i've planned out so far - most of these packs i plan to author no matter what; the first of these is currently in progress.
from They Might Be Giants (1986):
- Put Your Hand Inside The Puppet Head
- Don't Let's Start
- (She Was A) Hotel Detective
- She's An Angel
from Lincoln (1988):
- Purple Toupee
- They'll Need A Crane
(originally) from Flood (1990):
- Istanbul (Not Constantinople) [a live version, possibly featuring intro guitar solo]
- Your Racist Friend
- Particle Man [again, live]
- Someone Keeps Moving My Chair
(originally) from Apollo 18 (1992):
- I Palindrome I
- The Statue Got Me High
- The Guitar (The Lion Sleeps Tonight)
- See The Constellation
- Fingertips [live]
yes, this is an awful lot of songs to author for one little band with just two minor radio hits. but there's enough of a cult following out there that i think it might be worth the effort to do at least some of these. what do you all think? please let me know!
