Talk:It's Kickin' In

From This Might Be A Wiki

10-15-09: Given a cursory glance at the lyrics, the main narrative of this song describes a late night ecstasy trip.

7-23-04: Does anyone else hear "Some disaffected waitress" instead of "The disaffected waitress," even though that's what it says on the lyric sheet? --My Evil Twin's Twin

7-30-04: Now, that you point it out, I can't really tell what that word is. If I listen really closely, it sounds like "Seh", with part of each word. So I don't know. Here's another close-listening question, though: On the "fake words" part, can you hear another voice speaking in the background? It sounds like it would actually be English, if only I could make it out, but it's exceedingly elusive. Anyone have any ideas? (Credit goes to RabbiVole for noticing this and pointing it out to me.) -Whistledance

I've noticed this before too, but was never able to make it out. Dunno if it is intentional or not -Duke33
It's Linnell going "I can't understand your accent." Try headphones. - Doctor Masonstein

This song raises a very good point...there is simply NO WAY to justify a party band for somebody with no party plans. Just try and do it. It's impossible. --An orangutan

Song style[edit]

The style of this song reminded me rather of Elvis Costello - the organ playing, the shouty singing style... Do we reckon this was deliberate, or just a coincidence? - Mykl

It seems deliberate- the singing-style is very reminiscent of early EC, the keyboards are similar to Steve Nieve's, the reverb is the sort of thing that-year's-model EC did... it would be difficult to explain as a coincidence, since TMBG are both Costello fans and would spot the similarities if they were unintentional... -Smoot


I like this song, I think it's a good sequel to Mr. Xcitement --⇂⇂↋ suᴉɥsuǝZ ʎɯɯᴉᒋ (talk) 10:00, 26 October 2021 (EDT)
