Best They Might Be Giants Songsqueen11 They Might Be Giants (a.k.a TMBG) is an alternative rock band that has been together since 1982 (30 years as of 2012), and are one of the most prolific bands of all-time in recordings (over 500 original songs). For first decade of its existence, the band was only composed of two members: John Flansburgh on guitar and John Linnell on accordion or saxophone (accompanied only by a drum machine). A full ensemble was formed after the release of Apollo 18, their forth studio album.
Perhaps their most popular song is "Boss of Me," their Grammy Award-winning song that is best known for serving as the theme song for the successful sitcom "Malcolm in the Middle."
The Top Ten
Very catchy very creative. It takes a great musician and lyricist to be able to create a song in the perspective of something as unusual as a nightlite - queen11
This is one of the best rock/alternative rock songs in the world, and defintly the best TMBG song.
Excellent remake from a big band hit from the 40s. This is the version from Flood, not Severe Tire Damage. - queen11
Anyone who doesn't love this song, hasn't hear it. It so catchy, you'll be listening to it all day!
This is an awful song and the actual name of the City is CONSTANTINOPLE jerks do you know what istabul means it means to the City a alternate name of CONSTANTINOPLE
This is one of my favorite and one of the greatest songs ever. It is the band's best song, and is so great.

One of the catchiest, most upbeat and cheerful-sounding songs I've ever heard, just makes me smile
Dr Worrmm yyyeess me big fan doh
They haven't yet built the man, that'll keep this ranking down.
Catchy, philosophical, and above all, funny. There is so little sense of humor in pop. This is refreshingly different.
By my opinion the best tmbg song, but one of the best songs of all time... After 'American pie' of course.
Should probably be above Particle Man
Quite underrated - MaxStickies
Lovely accordion bridge by JL.
