(Top Modern Rock Songs Of All Time)
Song: "Don't Let's Start"
Artist: They Might Be Giants
Release Date: November,1987
From the Album: They Might Be Giants (1986)
Quick Take: It's one of the few songs where John Linnell actually sounds as if he's having a good time, even when singing lines like "Everybody dies frustrated and sad and that is beautiful," and the chorus is so instantly memorable that it's still conceivable that a Top Ten cover could be made some day.
