That's not an issue anymore, thankfully. Not since George Newman blew the lid off Satanism on an episode of Town Talk.

I recently listened to They Might Be Giants "Apollo 18" album and I couldn't help but notice their song "See The Constellations" sounds a fair bit like "I Remember Larry". Has anyone else ever noticed this before? If you haven't play both songs back to back and I think you'll see what I mean.

I just listened to it for the first time (Well half of it) and the melody of the chorus is pretty similar.

I remember hearing it had been previously confirmed that this song was a style parody of "Calling All Girls" by Hilly Michaels. Quite frankly, I'm surprised no one but me thought to bring it up in the songs' official thread until just now. Al already covered TMBG with EYKIW on this album but then again, we're talking about the same album where Al parodied two different Soul Asylum songs ("Misery" >> "Syndicated Inc." "Black Gold" >> "The Night Santa Went Crazy). Plus, TNSWC also borrowed a bit from Ozzy Osbournes' "Mama I'm Coming Home", so who am I to say Al didn't style this one after two specific songs from TMBG AND Hilly Michaels?

Even the ending on both songs kind of goes into this psychedelic vibe with a sitar sound.

I am so damn happy they did this in Montreal! It was so heavy too. Al's accordion playing was deadly! Bermuda killed it on the kit as well, was so happy to finally hear a Bad Hair Day deep cut Live, thought that may never happen.
