Notes/Trivia

Tim "Confused by the Eggs" Jones © 2004, 2005

Solo: Glen

Ah, Doug. A tasty tidbit of joy. Composed in the wee hours of the morning, probably around 4 am, in the midst of an arranging/composing binge (that same night I did two arrangements for college groups, Cheeseburger for moosebutter, and composed Doug. When THE MUSE comes to visit, ladies and gentlemen, just let 'er do 'er thing). So, think all-nighter, little food, staring at the computer for 12 hours straight, and that's pretty much the explanation of the song.
We premiered the song at the BYU A Cappella Jam a week after it was composed, April 2004. We then fully intended to never, ever perform it again, not record it, completely drop it from circulation and let it become the wraithful stuff of legends. Alas, Bob Ahlander's daughter's plaintive pleas reached our ears, as did a desperate need for show filler for SLC First Night the following Dec. 31st, and we pulled it out of retirement. Thankfully, now that it's in the set, we don't have to sing Wild Thing anymore.
Postscript: after the all-night scoring session, with absolutely no sleep, I drove 8 1/2 hours to Provo, Utah from Colorado Springs, Colorado. During the drive, just outside of Grand Junction, I hallucinated that my one-year-old daughter was talking to me OUTSIDE THE DRIVER'S SIDE WINDOW.
If any of you ever try that I will personally track you down and slap you with the idiot stick.
All background parts sung by Tim, to give it the ultra-smooth texture that it has.
