Trivia/Info

  • This song was one of the few recorded by Hello The Band, which consisted of John Flansburgh and Joshua Fried.
  • "The jazzy stomp-along is embellished by Sanko's walking bass lines and Joshua's hyperactive organ stabs." -Joshua Fried, in one of Myke Weiskopf's interviews
  • From MonoPuff.org - "Flansburgh takes us on one of his rare but brilliant falsetto trips with a stunningly bizarre 'Since You Joined The Corporation'".
  • "The bass line actually also came mostly from me. I did a radio spot for Pepsi and it has pretty much that bass line...The "corporation" refers to the songwriting credit on a lot of the early Jackson 5 songs. They are written by the quote "corporation" and I don't know the story behind that, but both Flansburgh and I remarked upon that and we said like, let's take this musical material that I had and let's turn it into a Motown-y thing." -Joshua Fried
