like i've mentioned before, this one was itchy for me. i didn't like the angsty angsty lyrics, they felt like too much of my teenage self. but ben loved the song. as you can hear, there's a bridge in the song that later got chopped out. that was all ben folds. he was convinced it slowed the tune down. i have to agree. it's better when the driving pace never lets up. this song is almost impossible to sing live. in fact it IS impossible to sing live. i have to edit out words. if you listen to a live recording, you'll notice that certain phrases get contracted and certain words get dropped. it is a necessity, this song is literally not singable the way it wound up on the actual record.
My guitarist/synthist & horn arranger/conductor Chad Raines just put out an album. If you've seen us on tour, you know this: The sweet sounds of THE SIMPLE PLEASURE will make you dance your ass off!! Amanda Palmer
Kim and I go way back. She's played shows with me all over the world, and I was on a 7" record she Kickstarter'd a few years ago. Her new album is an electro-space-pop love letter to the cosmos. Amanda Palmer

My best friend from high school introduced me to Evelyn Evelyn. They now live across the country. Listening to this makes me think of all the times we sang Elephant Elephant together at the top of our lungs in their car. We really like elephants. nicroth1220
