Imagination is Awesome

On November 5, 2010 the long-awaited episode of Yo Gabba Gabba! featuring The Flaming Lips finally aired.  It’s not the first time The Flaming Lips have played for the younger set though.  They wrote and performed “SpongeBob and Patrick Confront The Psychic Wall of Energy” (how’s that for a song-title!) for 2004’s SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, “Love the World You Find” for 2007’s Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium and – for the slightly older set – “The Supreme Being Teaches Spider-Man How To Be In Love” (wow, another awesome title!) to 2008’s Spiderman 3.  Similarly, Lips’ musical-mastermind Steven Drozd and Steve Burns – of Blue’s Clues fame – wrote and played “I Hog the Ground” (it was that time of the year – Groundhog’s Day – watch it here) for another Nick Jr. program, Jack’s Big Music Show (on February 2, 2007 – the same episode that had Jon Stewart guest!).  Drozd and Burns – calling themselves Steve-N-SteveN – have worked on a children’s album as well.
