Sonnets Set To Music

I'm not a fan of either Led Zeppelin or The Doors, but both did something whacky: Led Zeppelin's song Houses of The Holy is not on the Album Houses of The Holy, they put it on Physical Grafiti. If you liked the song "Houses Of The Holy", and wanted to get the album it was on, you would probably go out and see an album called "Houses of The Holy" and then think something was wrong because the song you liked wasn't there. The doors did the same thing, with a song called "waiting For The Sun," which did not appear on thear album by the same name.

I decided to do the same thing. However, I couldn't think of anything so i decided to just make the song a song telling you to buy sonnets set to music. I think i thought of this while I was talking to my friend Dave Lifrieri.

I tried writing it out but then discarded it when I was ready to record it, except the first verse which I kept and then said "screw it.." Otherwise, the entire song you hear is completely completely improvised live, with.no going back and changing little mistakes or getting better ideas later. I set up my mic and did this song with out over dubbing or anything. Just me and a guitar and what ever happens. This turned out with good results when i forgot how to spell my real last name. It sometimes sounds like there is some one else in the room saying "yeah" after that, thats just me with my head tuned away from the microphone.

Consaquently, something did happen. The door bell rang. In case you were wondering, it was my pal Benjamin Donsky. I thought that made for a nice ending. You also might notice a sound that says "albatros", which is john clease saying it. Thats the sound my computer makes when I get email. Wow, a doorbell and email at the same time!!!! I do not remember what email thats was.

I recoreded this song maybe a week and a half before releasing titty titty yum yum. I like this song, but its too long, and ruins the flow of the record. Its something that would have fit better onto Sonnets Set To Music for that reason, was plagued with songs that did the same exact thing. How ever, I thought the song was good enough and was amusing enough to stay anyways, so i kept it.
