They Might Be Giants was all the rage when I was in college. Their alternative, modern rock sound could be heard blaring from many a dorm room. What I didn’t realize is that TMBG has ventured into the children’s music genre.
Yes, I know, it’s old news for some parents, but I don’t have any wee ones of my own or know much about kid’s music except for the Wiggles and Barney. So when I heard the “Electric Car” by TMBG, I was blown away.
It features the vocals of Robin Goldwasser and is off of TMBG’s Here Comes Science children’s album, released last year. The horn arrangement by Dan “The Machine” Levine is fantastic and the video directed by Tiny Inventions is pretty cool too.
What a great way to teach little tykes about eco-friendly choices through music and catchy lyrics. Hopefully, in 10-15 years, teens will be clamoring to drive the electric car.
