Talk:Burning Coffee

From This Might Be A Wiki

Can we assume this is an unmade Dunkin Donuts commercial? I can see a slow-motion montage of brown-liquid eruptions on kitchen counters, craters, and aircraft alike, and can hear John Goodman convincing us afterwards that making your own coffee is just too horrifying a task to trust to a non-professional. ~ magbatz 12:43, 19 May 2011 (EDT)

The trivia/info thing[edit]

I think that the thing that was put on the trivia/info section should be put on the interpretations page. It is a possible meaning of the song but there are still people who disagree with it. I didn't undo it because I think it might be better to discuss it before it could turn into an "undid revision" fight. -- Buzzmusic100 ("Keep your voice down...")

I agree, it sounds like an interesting condition and I wouldn't doubt that TMBG would write a song about it, but then again, there's nothing to imply that the scent of something burning caught by the narrator is only a hallucination. I don't really think it should stay there but that's just my opinion. It should probably rephrased, though. -Apollo (colloquia!) 19:09, 25 May 2011 (EDT)
I'm gonna remove it. My interpretation is that it's about the struggles of making coffee, in which one possible disaster taken to the extreme is burning coffee flying everywhere, stinking up the place. Since burnt coffee is not an impossible thing, it being a hallucination is nothing we can assume. ~ magbatz 22:32, 25 May 2011 (EDT)
I think that it can be about Phantosmia because he is asking if anyone else can smell something burning and he wonders why the sprinklers aren't on. Most people who have Phantosmia smell something burning that isn't there, so it is logically that the song may be about that. It may also be about a seizure because my aunt used to have them, and she would smell something burning before she had one. Plus, I think that might be Marty Beller as the third vocalists because the vocals sounds similar to High Five. I just added it because the song sounds very similar to these health conditions.

You know what? Just for the sake of simplicity, I'll add this to the interpretations page. Anyone disagree? (Shuda7)) 16:01, 26 May 2011 (EDT)

I think I recognize the voice...[edit]

It almost sounds like one of the guys from People Are Wrong! Having only ever heard the music through Clock Radio, I can't say for sure who, but they definitely sounds similar... --SMB 00:58, 10 June 2011 (EDT)

The voice here sounds to me like Marty Beller. Could be wrong though, I suppose.
