5 O'Clock Shadow: "Istanbul (Not Constantinople)"

They Might Be Giants' "Flood" turned 25 today. We featured one of their biggest hits, "Istanbul (Not Constaninople)."

Most people (myself included) didn't know the original was a swing tune from the 50's by The Four Lads. Enjoy the TMBG video, animated by Tiny Tunes, the Looney Tunes spinoff.
