Trivia/Info

  • The "madness" turned into "bullshit" in this version. John Flansburgh: " "Bullshit" just sort of stuck out too much. There are a lot of things about the songs that get changed as they evolve. I think part of it is that when you're writing a song, you're trying to create something that is going to hold up to repeated listenings. So there are things that might have an immediate impact, that seem kind of cool, but over the long run they seem kind of bogus. Just the notion of saying the word "bullshit" over and over again seemed inarticulate." - Throttle Magazine, August 1990
