I’m Mr. Plants A. Man, and is my first post as a brand-new contributor to Rock O’Clock. Thank you to the Rock O’Clock staff for having me. This song is from the 1977 album Love You. I’d always kind of laughed at this album — topics include outer space, Johnny Carson, patting little girls on the butt, and honkin’ down gosh-darn highways. The vocals are sometimes hoarse. But this album is sincerely really good. Once you get used to the lyrics (which quickly just become endearing) the songwriting is deceptively high-quality. Plus it’s full of awesome synth tones, as in “I’ll Bet He’s Nice.” Unusually for Love You, the lyrics to this song are actually not retarded.
