Unreliable Narrator (I'm The Substitute Now):They Might Be Giants
Artist: They Might Be Giants
Appears On (Mixes): Jeff Bridges... I Don't Need No Jeff Bridges To Put Music To My Poem!
Song Notes: A rare They Might Be Giants song. It was originally put up for upload on eMusic for free. I think it was recorded for Malcolm in the Middle, though I don't know if it was ever used. I think when it came out, they were hinting that it'd show up on the upcoming album. It didn't. In fact, the two radio teaser promos that came out before Mink Car featured a lot of songs that didn't make it onto Mink Car despite being listed as "From the Upcoming Album", for example "Your Mom's Alright" and different mixes of "Mr. Xcitement" and "I've Got A Fang", which makes me think that Mink Car's running order was up in the air until the CD was pressed. Anyway, it's a short John Flansburgh composition about a substitute teacher. - Rev. Syung Myung Me
