“Can’t Keep Johnny Down” (Live On Fallon) (Video)


    The just-released They Might Be Giants album is titled Join Us, and the band performed its lead track “Can’t Keep Johnny Down” on Jimmy Fallon’s show last night (July 27). If you’re already familiar with this group then there are few surprises here—it’s constructed around a quirky pop-rock groove that’s as infectious as most of the songs in the They Might be Giants canon. It’s brief, barely reaching the two-and-a-half minute mark, but this is the kind of song that should flicker briefly into your life and not outstay its welcome. Clearly the 30 years these band members have spent in the business have taught them the true meaning of brevity. [via The Audio Perv]
