They Might Be Giants – “Your Racist Friend”

Year: 1990

Album: Flood

It’s such an innocent and goofy sound, like the stuff you’d hear on Tiny Toon Adventures (oh wait), but I believe it was Kurt Vonnegut who once said that laughter and tears are both responses to frustration and exhaustion. Also, if you’ve never listened to They Might Be Giants, start with Flood.
