Labio Dental Fricative:Vivian Stanshall Sean Head Showband
Appears On (Mixes): Jeff Bridges... I Don't Need No Jeff Bridges To Put Music To My Poem!
Song Notes: As I was talking about on "The Bride Stripped Bare By "Bachelors"", the Bonzo Dog Band knew their pop music structure. This isn't an official Bonzo Dog Band track; they'd broken up by this time, but it is Vivian Stanshall, who (with Neil Innes, who wrote "Bride") was one of the two core members of the group. Eric Clapton plays ukelele on this. The bulk of the song is a light, amusing set of tongue-twisters, but listen to the bridge; it's an exquisite piece of pop songwriting. This is somewhere on my list of all-time favorite bridges (somewhere near the bridge to "Wishing Ring" by The Young Fresh Fellows). - Rev. Syung Myung Me
