Istanbul (Not Constantinople):They Might Be Giants

Artist: They Might Be Giants

Album: Flood:They Might Be Giants, Istanbul (Not Constantinople) EP

Appears On (Mixes): Obligatory Mix Vol. 1

Song Notes: The version of this song I chose for the mix is the Brownsville Remix, taken from the EP. It adds a couple minutes worth of samples (one taken from Kraftwerk's The Robots!) and some neat production. I tend to prefer the original album version, but this one is still pretty interesting, and, hey, at least it's not the same one you've heard a billion times before. At least of this writing—with luck this will change -- They Might Be Giants have never compiled the Elektra era B-sides and remixes, so that EP is the only place to get this particular version of this song. Well, except for the Internet, I guess. But that would be WRONG. -Rev. Syung Myung Me
