Trivia/Info

  • In a 2008 interview, John Linnell stated that this track started out with a drum loop from The Dust Brothers, who produced the song. The track produced over the loop was originally meant for a song to be included on The Else, but the music ended up sounding more childish, and suitable for a lyric about the number "seven".
  • According to another interview with John Flansburgh, Henry's tracks were recorded at the Linnell house.
  • The video was directed by David Ahuja. In the video, the narrator's house isn't green. It's pink.
  • John Flansburgh and Dan Miller voice the "Sevens" in live performances.
