Who wrote what

  • I love Do the Neurotic. I feel like they went the safer route by choosing to include The Brazilian on the album instead of Do the Neurotic. That jam throughout DTN is fantastic, and the end to me is a classic example of “sounds the way joy feels.”

  • i've been thinking of a certain song lately...


    long ago i read somewhere that the lyrics to paperlate were written by phil.


    i bet you anything that they were actually written by mike.


    "Ooh it's too easy to live in a cold sweat
    Just sitting dripping in pools below"


    "Oh it's too easy to compute your future
    Taking no risks and playing too safe"


    "Ooh it's too easy to talk about rocking the boat
    Making changes and changing track
    But you'd better not lock that door
    'Cause you'll be coming back"


    these lyrics sound very mike-ish to me.

    I think it can be difficult to guess the writer of a song's lyrics based on the writing style. For example, Steve recently said that the lyrics to "Inside & Out" are Phil's, but I think they sound far more Mike-like than "Paperlate."
