This week, I promised you 5 brand new covers songs.  So when you find out that today we are looking at THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS' cover of "Istanbul", you may say…

"But Jordan, TMBG covered that song back in 1990!"

Well you'd be half correct.  They covered it AGAIN!

They Might Be Giants are about to release a new rarities album Album Raises New and Troubling Questions.

This video caught my attention right away…

 

 

You may remember this version from the 1990 album FLOOD.

 

 

Well here is the original version from the Four Lads.
