From This Might Be A Wiki
|releases||State Songs, TMBG Clock Radio, Podcast 5A|
|first played||October 7, 1995 (11 known performances)|
|sung by||John Linnell|
- This is the same recording as the version on the State Songs EP from 1994, just mixed differently and with an additional synth bass.
- The intro to the song appears to be lifted directly from a song off The Beatles' Revolver album, "Good Day Sunshine." The typical opening piano chord is this time played by a synthesizer, and the opening drumroll is a clear copy of Ringo Starr's intro to the song. But the shaving razor's sting leads exactly back to The Monkees' "Daydream Believer."
- From the State Songs liner notes:
The State Flag of the Pine Tree State shows the north star with the motto: "Dirigo" ("I direct"). Indeed, Maine serves as a kind of "pointer" for the rest of the country, directing our attention to Greenland and the Maritime Provinces.
