During a live performance at College Street Music Hall in New Haven, Connecticut, the prolifically creative band They Might Be Giants (previously) performed a song from the 1990 album Flood backwards perfectly. The band renamed this version of the song “Stilloob”, but when this version was then reversed, it was revealed to be “Sapphire Bullets of Pure Love”.
Always up for a challenge, all 5 members of They Might Be Giants decided to learn an entire song backwards. “Stilloob” debuted on February 6, 2020 at College Street Music Hall in New Haven, CT.
Needless to say, this feat was quite impressive to those who witnessed it in action.
For the first time last night, @tmbg played a classic song of theirs, memorized and performed completely BACKWARDS.
Also mind-blowing: after reversing the video for YouTube, the copyright bots recognized the original song before I titled it.
