Songs that you never knew were covers

"Istanbul (Not Constantinople)" (They Might Be Giants; The Four Lads): This song's lyrics are so profoundly silly ("Every gal in Constantinople lives in Istanbul, not Constantinople/So if you've a date in Constantinople she'll be waiting in Istanbul") that it's hard to believe they were inked by anybody other than the Giants' two Johns. And yet, they were. Feel like rockin' out Four Lads–style? Click here.

Thanks, Julia. Cilla and I are big TMBG fans and I had no idea Istanbul was a cover.
