They Might be Giants meets Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Wyomingnot's wonderful fan video for They Might Be Giants' "Fingertips" suite of 21 songs in less than five minutes, from the duo's 1992 album Apollo 18.

Here's what TMBG's John Linnell once said about "Fingertips":

The project was to write a bunch of choruses and nothing else. In other words, I had to restrain myself from writing any other parts of the songs. I wanted a collection of choruses that's something like what you see on TV late at night, like that old K-Tel commercials. I was thinking about how you know a lot of songs from these ads, but the only part you know is maybe one line, which is half the chorus. And yet they stick in your head in the way a whole song would. in a way, these tiny chips of songs seem complete, because you don't know the rest of the song.

The Force is strong with John and John.

(Thanks UPSO!)
