They Might Be Giants’ 1990 album Flood brims with hits, and while we love “Particle Man” and “Istanbul (Not Constantinople)” as much as the next fan, it’s the buoyant, uplifting “Birdhouse In Your Soul” that really makes our hearts flutter (Titus Andronicus’, too, apparently).
Like much of They Might Be Giants’ music, the song bubbles with a sense of childlike wonder; it’s little surprise, then, that it sounds just as joyous being sung by a choir of 6,500 children. A Young Voices choir in England recently took on the song, which you can hear selections of below.
