I wrote this next song when I was trying to find ways to make a guy and an acoustic guitar sound a little more like two people playing. And I needed something to play at open mic nights. I don't think I ever told anybody this, but I thought this was equal parts song, and also ways to get people who don't care to notice. So it had a little bit of a firework-y thing to try to get people to go, like, What?
Cause I had started out here where I remember it was just the bar staff, like three people. And you know they had a conversation about this because they would all clap but not together, so that it was just sounding like one clap. Cause chances are—nothing is more pathetic than three people clapping in unison to you. So I think they fanned it up, You go, then I'll go, and it'll sound like six people. So this was a way to kind of go, like, [desperately] Hey! Hey!
