“Butch came up with the line when he was driving around Los Angeles and saw some of the more unusual types of human kind out there," says Marker. "He called up Shirley with the title, and she said, ‘Yeah, that has to be a song.’ Rather quickly, we decided it had to be the title of the album because it summed up how we were feeling.
“Like so many songs, this one happened fast. Butch had the line, and we just grabbed the guitars and wrote it. Shirley’s vocals, too – I wouldn’t call them ad-libbed, but the words came together quick.
“I’m playing the intro guitar part. It was a kind of heavy metal riff when Butch brought it in, something he was playing around with, sort of Black Sabbath-like, but we put a clean, twangy, country-ish sound to it. There’s a lot of guitars on the track. I’m doing the slide stuff in the middle; it’s supposed to sound a little Pink Floyd/David Gilmour. I used a Henman guitar. I’ve been playing those live and having a lot of luck with them.”
