TAKE OUT THE TRASH - THE SMASH HIT SONG OF THE SUMMER


THE SMASH HIT SONG OF THE SUMMER has landed, and it is "Take Out The Trash" by They Might Be Giants.

It's got a lot going for it radio fans; a killer bass line, some handclaps, a catchy chorus that you can sing along with after only one listen, and the hook - when John Flansburgh wails "Girl"!!!!! This is a keeper.

Call up and request the SMASH HIT SONG OF THE SUMMER, turn your radio up, crank your car windows down, and sing along.

It is what summer is all about.
