i wrote this song in one sitting in lisbon, portugal, thus proving for the first time that i could write a song on the road if i just got off my lazy ass, skipped lunch and DID it. and i did. and i'm very proud i did. the idea for the song came to me that morning on the bus. i was walking through the front lounge and i saw our monitor tech sitting on the couch and staring into space. and the line "no one can stare at the wall as good as you" came into my head with the melody. and it stuck there. and usually, those things come and go 23 times a day and i let them fly away. but this time i decided to skip lunch and write, since i had a dressing room all to myself in the huge government building we were playing that night. had i not had the room, i wouldn't have written the song. thank you, lisbon.
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
