The Giants Revived by Daisies

... should've been posted 3 weeks ago but life got in the way.

They Might Be Giants, a group in the 80s, known for their kooky songs (Istanbul) and kookier lyrics had been a group I really enjoyed listening to when I got in the military. They were simple, easy to listen to, and great to listen to when you needed a little lift in the day. Here's one of their songs that made me happy every time it was played:



Imagine my surprise when the show Pushing Daisies gave the obscure sound a (short) reprise. It was fun hearing it especially when you're not expecting to hear the ditty.



With that in mind, what obscure band should have their song be sung by Olive (or any of the PD cast) and be given some new life?

Since you're asking about holiday gifts, can you get me the Season 2 Weeds DVD? I just realized how hilarious that show is. We guys went shopping for y'all this weekend as well. Jem thinks that your boy will like what he got him.
