A They Might Be Giants tribute album seems long overdue. John Flansburgh and John Linnell have always been fantastic songwriters - obviously witty, but also perceptive and able to handle sad or sentimental subjects with a light touch that somehow makes them even more poignant. Hello Radio: The Songs of They Might Be Giants gathers friends and admirers to pay homage; like most tribute albums, the results are mixed, but there are enough bright spots to make it a fitting tribute. The collection does indeed feature versions of several of They Might Be Giants' most beautifully written songs:.
Dial-A-Song: 20 Years Of They Might Be Giants is a 2002 compilation album by They Might Be Giants issued by Rhino Records and compiled by singer, songwriter, and guitarist John Flansburgh. Despite its name, the compilation does not include tracks from the band's "Dial-A-Song" service. It is instead an anthology of various album and live tracks from the band's history, spanning their full career up to the time of its release.
They Might Be Giants released their eponymous debut in 1986, and the album became a college radio hit; it also made waves on MTV due to the inventive video for "Don't Let's Start. Two years later they released Lincoln, which expanded their following considerably. Featuring the college hit "Ana Ng," Lincoln climbed to number 89 on the charts, earning the attention of major labels. They Might Be Giants decided to sign with Elektra Records in 1990, releasing Flood later that year. They also contributed to various film soundtracks, including Disney's Meet the Robinsons and the film adaptation of Neil Gaiman's Coraline. The band's 14th studio release, The Else, hit stores in the summer of 2007. Here Come the 123's, the sequel to Here Come the ABC's, appeared in early 2008. Later that year, the CD/DVD set Venue Songs, which featured appearances by actor/comedian John Hodgman, was released.
Ana Ng" (/ɛŋ/ ENG) is a song by alternative rock band They Might Be Giants. It was released as the lead single from the band's 1988 album Lincoln. Although the song was their first US chart appearance, hitting on the US Modern Rock chart, the single was never officially released in the US. It was only released for promotional purposes in the US, and saw official releases in 1989 in the United Kingdom (as a maxi-single), Australia, and later, in 1991, in Europe.

They Might Be Giants are, along with Matthew Sweet and a handful of others, what I remember of college radio from the early ‘90s. On Join Us, their 15th studio album, the Johns’ continue to build upon this solid foundation with a collection of songs that finds the band looking backwards as they move forward. Pulling elements from all of their past work, the album feels like a survey course in They Might Be Giants, touching on different points in their creative development yet still managing to feel like a cohesive collection of work.
