Trivia/Info

  • Also known as "Richard's On Richards" in the original concert setlist, as it was TMBG's venue song for the now-defunct Richard's on Richards in Vancouver.
  • This song is very similar to "My Best Friend's Girl" by The Cars. The synthesizer in the alternate version and featured briefly in the Venue Songs version is very similar to that used by The Cars, and the guitar line starting with the lyric "You know what I mean" is almost note-for-note the same as the bass line used in "My Best Friend's Girl," starting with the lyric "Here she comes again."
