Talk:Everything Right Is Wrong Again

From This Might Be A Wiki

They is a song by Barenaked ladies called 'everything old is new again', and although that song really doesn't have *that* much in common with 'e.r.i.w.a' a tiny refrence? BNL are TMBG fans....

Um. No. Just no. That's an actual expression. And I would go so far as to say it has nothing in common with it. (And isn't a very good song either, no offense to BNL.) --Self Called Nowhere 05:49, 15 August 2010 (UTC)


Not sure about that, but Weird Al definitely is referencing it with his TMBG tribute song, "Everything You Know Is Wrong" - Jordan

Yeah, he's admitted to that. -CapitalQtalk ♪ 06:31, 7 Mar 2006 (CST)

I was just trying to figure that out yesterday! They have a bit of the same melody, too, I guess. Sparkling_Omelets 21:43, 26 March 2010 (UTC)

Need help finding the title of a movie..[edit]

I remember watching a movie on the Movie Channel about 10 years ago that featured this song at the end of the movie. I think Steve Buscemi was in it. Does anyone know the movie I'm talking about?

The film is called Ed and His Dead Mother. -TDK 11:09, 3 August 2006 (UTC)

Iraq War[edit]

The Ventura County Reporter made a comparison between this song and the current war in Iraq. It's kind of weird: [1] — User:ACupOfCoffee@ 01:03, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

Since they recently had an article in their newspaper or publication asserting that They are "the greatest songwriting duo of the past 20 years" and that "they’ve managed make records that should be mentioned in the same breath as Sgt. Pepper’s, Pet Sounds and Blonde on Blonde," it doesn't surprise me that they would once again mention TMBG in such an odd capacity. Though it's kind of dumb. It's also fun to note that the author seemed to forget to mention that the song was written years before even the first Gulf War. ~ magbatz 03:54, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

Float Upstream[edit]

"Tell me that you like my float upstream" Is a "Float Upstream" a reference to the camper trailer in the Lucile Ball movie 'The Long, Long Trailer'? Airstream is a brand of camper trailer.

Is "Float Upstream" the name of the camper trailer, or is it just that the camper trailer is an Airstream brand trailer? If it is Float Upstream, that's really cool, and I hope/would think it was an intentional reference. ~ magbatz 21:01, 17 December 2008 (UTC)
Are we sure it's 'float upstream'? I know that they started saying that by the time they did the First Album Live recording, but the general consensus among people who know about such thangs is that the real words are 'tell me that you like my dumb tapestry'.--WhatTheHeckLinnell (talk) 11:17, 20 December 2018 (EST)
I agree with this although I always thought it was dumb tapestry not duck tapestry.--WhatTheHeckLinnell (talk) 19:44, 10 December 2020 (EST)

One of the best[edit]

This song almost sets up the Giants career. I remember listening to this back in 1990 and just finding this the most surreal thing ever. Easily one of the best Giants songs. (Mr Tuck)
