  • From TMBG Unlimited: "The banjo was the only thing handy when this song was written, so the 'memorandum' version was inadvertently folky. Some of the words and music weren't quite fixed yet, but the important thing was to get it down. We both had plenty of experiences with having song ideas we thought were keepers, only to draw a complete blank the next day after failing to write it down or record it. At which point we could only gesture impotently to indicate the magnitude of the 'big one that got away.'"
