I recorded two versions of this song. The first time I tried to get it to sound like "Don't Worry Baby" by the Beach Boys but failed misreably. The first version also had different lyrics on the part after the break, and durring the break had a toy accordian solo. No one liked it. I rerecorded soon though and ended up with what you hear on the record today. In the backround, you can hear Marc Omelsky playing my bongos. This is just backround noise how ever, and is not considered part of the song.
I once had a teacher who told me that you can't copy right a title, which is why there are a million songs called "I Love You." With this in mind, I decided to call my first album Nuttin But A 'G' Thang. I later changed my mind and decided to call it Sonnets Set To Music. However, I still liked the idea of stealing another title so I decided to call this song Ice, Ice Baby.
I think this song ended up sounding a little bit like Madonna's Material Girl. Obviously, the subject matter is exactly the same. Also, some of the voices I did in the backround near the end kind of remind my of my friend Jon Snow for some reason.
I think this is my only song that mentions school.
