This week’s song is an extra-special treat! It combines a They Might Be Giants classic with the characters of Sherlock…. and it goes together a little too well (there’s even a ‘Mycroft is fat’ joke in there)! Thanks to youtube user MoonMouse for figuring this out!
The Song: “Particle Man” by They Might Be Giants
Person man, person man
Hit on the head with a frying pan
Lives his life in a garbage can
Is he depressed or is he a mess?
Does he feel totally worthless?
Who came up with person man?
Degraded man, person man
The Artist: They Might Be Giants is an American alternative rock group. They were the folks behind Dial-A-Song. They’ve written many science-themed songs which really should be played in every science classroom. The group has also done work for the people behind Homestar Runner, and wrote the theme song for Malcolm in the Middle! This week’s song was used in the cartoon Tiny ‘Toons, but it seems like it works way better with Sherlock!
