“I don’t get around how you get around”

July 18, 2008

Cool old ad in the December/January 1986 East Village Eye for They Might Be Giants’ first record, which features the poppy and nonsensical “Don’t Let’s Start.” I think I heard it that spring when it was in heavy rotation on WLIR. (Or was it WDRE by then?)

I called the number for Dial-A-Song but it just rang and rang. To protect any innocent parties who may have that number now, I felt compelled to block out the last few digits.
