I heard a rumor somewhere that this song was on DTBS because Al's record company wanted him to do a cover of a song, and so he chose this to mess with them. Is this true?

It might be. It looks like DTBS is his record companies album instead of Al's.

That might make a good Ask Al question.

I thought it was an Ask Al from a long time ago. I know I heard this at least a decade ago, I just dont remember where.

I was never a fan of George of the Jungle and or the song. I am not sure why Al did a cover of a cartoon show. It kind of reminds me of things like "twister" or something.

I've never really enjoyed Al's cover of the George of the Jungle....it kind of gets on my nerves.

I thought so too at first, but there's only one question regarding the song on the whole Ask Al archive page (and it was more about the Disney movie rather than the production of the song itself).

The story could have come from an interview, but I wouldn't begin to guess from where or from how long ago.

this has always been a skip song for me :( I'd like to like everything Al's ever done but, it's just boring or annoying :(
I'm not comfortable in my comfort zone - it's poorly named.

Yeah, except that Al rarely ever posts those anymore.
