    "Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow"...covered by There Might Be Giants?!!

    Remember way back when Barenaked Ladies did a cover of "Grim Grinning Ghosts"? Well...

    http://www.amazon.com/Meet-Robinsons.../dp/B000N0KVQ0

    Check one of the tracks of the CD for the new movie and you'll notice that the good old Carousel of Progress tune is being done by...They Might Be Giants.

    Now, this is something else. Seeing as how this song only applies as nostalgia for baby boomers, and the attraction is near extinction at WDW, it's cool to see Disney acknowledge it. I wonder if it's just a bonus track or if it's in the actual movie, seeing how there's already Tomorrowland references in it, this makes a nice companion...

    I read about that on Wikipedia a while ago. It made me very, very happy. Now I just need Eels to cover "Yo Ho (A Pirate's Life for Me)", and I'll have my three favorite bands doing my three favorite Disneyland songs. (That would be a seriously trippy cover, too.)

    Not the first time They Might Be Giants covered park songs... they also did Main Street Electrical Parade.

    Also, considering the connection with the 1964 World's Fair and the fact that "Ana Ng" mentions things from that fair in the song, it's only appropriate that TMBG be the ones to do the cover.

    They are called, "THEY Might Be Giants". They have been one of my son's favorites for years. They are so cool! I had no idea they'd done any Disney music.

    And "Higglytown Heroes".

    What happened is that they went indie and made an agreement with Disney to release Their children's music once in a while in addition to Their more adult-oriented stuff on a label owned by the band.
