“We had this record on vinyl. When I was growing up, we didn’t have TV for a while, but we had music, which was such a blessing. This album was in my parents’ collection, and I listened to it a lot.
“The title track is very poppy; the production of it is a little bouncy, so you think it’s a happy-go-lucky song. But slow it down and you’ll realize that it’s such a sad, sad sentiment.
“The record also has My And Little Andy, Two Doors Down and It’s All Wrong, But It’s All Right – I mean, you just can’t find a bad cut on it. I’m always trying to rewrite Two Doors Down. I’ll hear other songs that remind me of it a little, so I guess I’m not the only one who’s inspired by it.”
