TMBG vs THE WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ: SOMEBODY DID THIS AND IT'S A THING NOW
People with too much time often create really wonderful things, and this is one of those things. TMBG OZ created this fun mashup of the music of They Might Be Giants and the film The Wizard of Oz. Remember ages ago when somebody figured out that you could sync Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon with The Wizard of Oz and the music KINDA matched the action on screen? It's like that only fun and maybe a bit more watchable even without drugs.
If you have seen the Pink Floyd mashup version you probably thought "hey, this is kind of crazy" or "you need to be really high to think this is interesting". With the They Might Be Giants version you just need to think "gosh, this is a fun way to listen to fun music, plus The Wizard of Oz is the best!"
Hey, don't let me stop you from watching BOTH versions and judging them on their own merits! Brooding arena rock or super fun nerd rock? WHO WILL WIN?
