I can see why you don't like that one.  After all, you still haven't come around to I'm So sick Of You. (Or have you?)  


No, not yet. I just can't seem to get past thinking of it like this:

1. Men do sometimes say insulting things to, and about, women they've lost interest in.

2. I just can't imagine Al doing so. If he found himself thinking something along those lines at any time during all those single years, I feel confident that he managed to keep it tucked behind his teeth until the impulse passed. He seems able to treat people with respect even under provocation.

3. Nevertheless, I can't see any real difference between "I'm So Sick of You" and the phenomenon in #1 except that Al came up with a much more creative array of insults. If there's some comic twist or altered viewpoint, some new light cast on the phenomenon, some turning the whole thing inside out or upside down, I'm missing it.

Maybe one reason that Good Old Days is so unsettling is the implication that little Mr. Pulling-Wings-Off-Flies got off scot-free


I've always imagined if there was a video clip, it'd zoom out at the end and you'd see he was in a prison cell. Helps me sleep a little better at night.

Thanks, that does help. It makes sense... if "those were the good old days" it suggests that these days are not. Bring on the bread and water!

Melanie. That is one of Al's best originals, and I just can't get it out of my head. I think I'm going crazy! :P

They're all great but I've always liked You Make Me and Stuck in a Closet With Vanna White the best, just above Fat and Melanie.

You Make Me was probably the best song from Even Worse. Fat is good but it's not as good without the video.

Anyway, You Make Me has great lines.

"You make me wanna hide a weasel in my shorts
You make me wanna phone home
You make me wanna write a thousand book reports
Then pack myself in styrofoam"

:D

Even Worse is easily my fave ALbum, so it's very hard for me to pick one favorite song since I love so many of them!

If I really had to pick one favorite, I would go with the hit of the album, Fat.
