Artist: Brian Eno

Album: Before & After Science

Appears On (Mixes): Wally's Novelty Mix: She Yo-Yos Me and I Yo-Yo Her Back; Dad's Guitar Stuff

Song Notes: This really isn't a novelty song, but the lyrics are fast-paced and nonsensical enough to fit, I think. Brian Eno's lyrics are writen by applying English words to his "doo-doo-doo"-ing over the demo tracks, based on sound, rather than meaning. So that's why there's a lot of sideways stuff in his lyrics, where he'll often not even know what the lyrics are about! It's cool, though, and sometimes he does some really great lyrics just from those sorts of sideways tone-poem-type-things. Also, he is amazing at writing music, so that helps. I love his rock stuff, though his Ambient stuff is cool, too. I think it's just that as an American Pop Music Consumer, I need that lyrical hook... doesn't matter that they don't make much sense. (Still, though, this is still one of the more sensical Eno lyrics...) - Rev. Syung Myung Me
