Dance party at my house! I’m all by myself, dancing like a crazy an eccentric person to an odd but fun mix of the Beatles, the Cars, Dean Martin, selections from the soundtrack to A Mighty Wind, selections from the soundtrack to Sleepless in Seattle, the Living Sisters, some Three Dog Night, and a couple of other things. Not dance music, you say? I’m not much of a dancer, I’d say. My neighbors would probably agree.
So let’s change the subject. We have a winner! Yesterday, I asked you fine people to guess to what tune I set the clever and insightful lyrics to “Chilly Toes”. Three people guessed, one person won. Before I make the announcement, here’s my rendition.

Jess, come on down! You’ve won the book of my choice! That’s right, I stole that melody from “Particle Man” by They Might Be Giants. I’d never heard of either the song or the band until Tiny Toon Adventures did an episode of music videos. They started with “Istanbul, Not Constantinople” and went straight into “Particle Man”. Totally weird, but totally great.
