Congratulations to all the participants in the big “I Left My Body” video contest. The Grand Prize winner is this week’s Dial-A-Song posting, created by David Kreutzer, and he will be receiving the $3000 prize plus a suite of killer video editing effects from Red Giant.

Competition judge Open Mike Eagle said of the winning entry:

After much consideration the grand prize goes to David Kreutzer. Despite the desperation in the password they chose (you know what you passworded), the heart displayed in this clip was impossible to overlook. The narrative arc is compelling as all heck and the direction and performances are infectious. This is the video that I believe the band would have made for this song.

I left my body and I went on a journey
and I forget where I left my body
they’re gonna tow you if they think you’re abandoned

you’ve got to act like you’re not abandoned
I left a notebook with all of my good ideas

key words encoded cryptographically
I’m waiting endlessly on the receptionist
at the desk
I’m searching high and low but I
don’t see anyone
don’t see anyone
don’t see anyone there

I left my body with the old landlady
but I don’t know if she read the directions
there must be something you can use on the carpet
someone might want that electric blanket

unfinished manuscript and a tungsten ring
my plastic hip is going to be worth something
I took the folding knife and the bat repellent soap

I left my body and right away I knew I’d made
a mistake
I left without my senses and I
can’t see anything
can’t see anything
I’m waiting endlessly on the receptionist
at the desk
I’m searching high and low but I
don’t see anyone
don’t see anyone
don’t see anyone there

They Might Be Giants today released a new video from their latest album I Like Fun. “The Greatest” video features non-other than Nick Offerman, familiar to many from his varied roles in Parks & Recreation, Fargo, Gilmore Girls and more. Watch, like and share on YouTube HERE.

Over on the other side of the pond, new album I Like Fun debuted at #3 in the Independent Albums, #8 in Alternative Albums, #14 in Tastemakers and #22 Top Album Sales! Over a year in the making, songwriters and band founders John Linnell and John Flansburgh draw on themes of dread, death, and disappointment and set them to their driving, hyper-melodic music. The results will leave even the most heavy-hearted among us with a renewed sense of wonder. Fresh and sonically adventurous, the band’s command of the studio and the song is in rare form from beginning to end.

The album’s release coincides with a world tour that kicks off with a fifty-city trek across the US, then on to Europe in September:
