Brooklyn nerd rockers They Might Be Giants mark week seven on their year-long Dial-A-Song project (previously) with “Answer,” a slightly belated Valentine’s Day love song of sorts, featuring a stop-motion music video collage by Brooklyn artist Joe Hollier. The song is a treatise on what happens when one fails to live up to romantic expectations.
It may take an ocean of whiskey and time
To wash all of the letdown out of your mind
And this may not be the thing you requested but I
Am the answer to all your prayers
