Gruntled Song of the Year

I know it is early to be making a selection, but there is one out there in enormous national release that will be tough to beat: "Things I Like to Do," by They Might Be Giants.

And why will tens of millions hear this song? Because it is used in a Dunkin' Donuts ad, as the donut peddlers go national as a working stiffs' espresso chain. And the song is perfect for that sensibility.

The ad is here.

They Might Be Giants is a brilliant duo. I LOVED their album Flood that came out in 1990, loved to sing the songs at Beta parties at Centre and saw them in concert around that time. Now, my 2 year old son loves the songs they sing for Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and is enamored w/ songs from their new album, "Here Come the 1-2-3's". You gotta love a band that spans the ages. :)
