I'm not sure if this is true, but I read somewhere that this song is a full episode of Star Trek sped up a lot and made really quiet and put to music. I don't know, I tried, I didn't find anything. You try it if you have a sound editing program and respond on this page. --Nabooic 23:48, July 5, 2004
- That's false. I think Dr. Banana said that, and most of his interps are humorous and un-true. (His interp of Particle Man is hillarious) --ClockStomper 18:21, August 8, 2004
I love that song DUM DUM doo doo doo DUM DUM doo doo doo DUM DUM...
Anyway, it's not about anything, it's got no words. Dur. ~AgentChronon 12:34, August 21, 2006
It's either about a space suit, or remembering 3rd Street. I can't decide. --ZippZapp 01:51, 28 January 2008 (UTC)
I don't have any real interpretations of the lyrics (you can probably guess why) but I do get a real impression of weightlessness and freedom from this song. But maybe it's just me. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk • contribs) 23:30, October 1, 2008
First time I heard it I thought it was an attempt to put as much of the "9th's" of chords in as possible. Including in chords, in harmonies, and in melodies. --Mkpiano 11:01, February 1, 2012
I always thought this was like an intro to something much larger or the beginning of some crazy adventure. Which makes it interesting that this is the first original TMBG song.
The accordion solo in the middle always reminded me of a French evening out with a girl, looking up into the night sky, and seeing only space. --Mr. Klaw
