No Means No

February 8, 2005

NO! by TMBGI first heard some of the songs from NO! in concert a couple of years ago. But just this past weekend, I borrowed the CD from the library. The kids love it! There are interactive Flash videos for most of the songs if you stick the disc into a computer. But even without a computer, they are silly songs for the whole family. (I have even heard my 12-year-old softly singing along!)

Here’s a taste of the videos, along with samples of all the songs.

As an American missionary kid who grew up in Japan, I'm a child of two cultures, while not fully belonging to either. This gives me a sightly different view of the world.

  1. I am personally addicted to the song called “the middle”. Try not to get “Dooooooooooooooooooon’t cros the street in the middle, in the middle, in the middle, in the middle of the block” stuck in your head for hours.
    It sometimes fun to make your co-workers think that you are insaine.

  2. For me, it’s “Clap Your Hands” and “Where Do They Make Balloons?” – both are 5-star, heavy-rotation songs in my iTunes/iPod playlists.

  3. Wow, you must be popular. Looks like your blog just got spammed. Either that or it’s a free offer for 200 bucks. I won’t be clicking the link to find out though! 😉

  4. Hmm. Somehow they got through both the anti-spam protection, and the usual email notification I get on all comments. I am leaving them there for the time being so that TypePad staff can take a look and figure it out.
    The reason they do this stuff, BTW, is not so you will click on it — it’s to raise their Google rank.

  5. The basic truth revealed: No means No. hah!

  6. The kids really enjoy “The House at the Top of the Tree” which is done in a classic children’s-song format of gradually adding repeating bits. Except that with They Might Be Giants, those bits are warped.
    My personal favorite: “I Am Not Your Broom”
