Interpretations:Doris Cunningham

From This Might Be A Wiki

Does anyone know what's up with this song?


My first impression was that she was talking to a robot. I think we could probably get more out of it if we had more details on the song itself (the origin of the title, who it is we're hearing, etc.) Joygerhardt 12:04, 3 Jul 2005 (EDT)


The (Dink oo dink oo dink) is at least a close approximation of the nose twitching sound from the Bewitched television series.


Hm, according to this, it's from the Frank O'Toole show. A fake interview. - Ecks


Always reminds me of The Cheat. Hmm..


This is the very end of a bizarre Dial-A-Song thing about how TMBG "lives like pigs", in which their voices get more and more distorted before just becoming random "tink" noises. Doesn't make it make any more sense, but still... strange that TMBG only used part of it on "Then".


Kinda reminds me of that paperclip on Windows.


Terri Gross/Fresh Air[edit | edit source]

The questions are being asked in voice that's a deadpan imitation of Terry Gross. Every time I listen to this my mind immediately goes into "interview on Fresh Air" mode with that voice.

I didn't know "imitations" could be done retroactively. Also, I'm pretty sure "public radio-ish mode" is pretty standard and not specific to her. But that's an interesting thought. --Self Called Nowhere 03:31, 17 September 2010 (UTC)
