For me, this song about a woman in love with a gay man was my first introduction to the Hayden Triplets.
Even though the Haydens are widely associated with that dog, this song, as well as every other one from their 2nd album, Totally Crushed Out (which is amazing), was written by Anna Waronker, lead vocalist and frequent Beck backing band member.
Why this band isn't as big as Weezer is a question that is often asked. And I agree. They should be.
that dog is a band that is still together. Here they are, performing this song in 2019.
