Talk:You Probably Get That A Lot

From This Might Be A Wiki

Since we got a page for Celebration cause of a lil' sample, how about we make a page for this then? SamuelMan36 00:52, 28 June 2011 (EDT)

I don't see what's so unbearable about waiting 20 more days, especially since we'll have all the proper information then. All the information we have on this song at the moment is available on the page for Join Us, and since that's where people looking for information on the new album and new songs will likely first be directed, I don't see much use in making a page just to repeat the same thing. Perhaps the page for "Celebration" was created a bit prematurely, there's nothing wrong with that, but it doesn't mean we have to use it as a precedent. - Apollo (colloquia!) 01:08, 28 June 2011 (EDT)

Should the definition of Cephalophores be put on the song page? Entropy

Quote from Linnell about recording technique?[edit | edit source]

"There's some possibly misguided ideas that we just pursued to the bitter end. For example, there's one song where the entire band sped up a substantial amount, and the vocal is at regular speed. Some of the people we played it for were like, "Those drums sound a little thin." They didn't get the point of it, so I don't know if that requires an explanation that we did this on purpose. "

I'm inclined to think this is the song he's referring to. Any ideas? -CapitalQtalk ♪ 20:17, 18 July 2011 (EDT)

What? No! When Will You Die, brother! Those drums are tiny and adorable, and check out the Dans - they're incredible, but they're not superhuman. This song's just glitchy and cool. -j2
Agreed! When Will You Die. Upon the first listening, it was evident to me that the drums (and possibly most of the arrangement) had been sped up. --Propman 03:51, 20 July 2011 (EDT)
Thirding "When Will You Die" being the sped-up one. Especially the trumpet. Holy crap. - J-Gatz
Okay, that actually makes a lot more sense! -CapitalQtalk ♪ 07:18, 20 July 2011 (EDT)

Misc[edit | edit source]

Just throwing it out there: For some reason, this song reminds me of Oppenheimer, the great now-defunct band that opened for They Might Be Giants during their 2007 Tour. Perspixx 01:35, 3 August 2011 (EDT)

Sampled?[edit | edit source]

There's a pop song making the rounds these days that sounds like it's sampling the riff from "You Probably Get That A Lot". I've heard it in passing a few times, but don't know the title/artist. Anyone else here know it? -thevince 16 August 2012
