When I wrote this piece, I was still making music with a band called Leaves. I always felt like the guys in Leaves played this song beautifully, but the band broke up before we had a chance to record it. Since then I recorded this song a few different times with a few different bands.
I had been thinking about writing a song that encourages silliness, which is a basic necessity of life. So often we take things way too seriously. This song is a reminder to myself that life is a gift.
