1. Love song to a television. “Binga bonga bing bong.”
2. Hitchcock’s existential/wordplay side in full force.
3. Simple message, simple song. “Everybody needs love.”
4. False beginning followed by a few seconds of silence. Then song fades up. A quiet, nostalgic love ballad.
5. Nearly a capella (plus slide Dobro and finger snaps) gospel blues.
==> 6. The college radio hit. But a super worthy one. “Creeped out American girl... everything is happening behind your eyes.”
7. Cinematic, spooky, dream tale/love song with a baker’s dozen of references to other Hitchcock songs. Beautifully poetic. Slide guitar.
8. Starts with slide guitar. Whimsical acoustic rocker. “Guess what? I’ve spoken to Norm. We’re gonna live in the trees.”
==> 9. Gentle, picked guitar. Very, very Go-Betweens like even though this is a Bob Dylan song. Note to self: go back through the G-B catalog with Dylan in mind.
10. Jazzy, swaying love ditty. Brushed drums, Wurlitzer organ, and guitar.
11. Silly, sub-minute, spoken welcome-to-earth monologue with Welch & Rawlings saying “crackle, crackle, pop.”
==> 12. Late night, weary ballad reminiscent of the “Invisible Hitchcock” period. “I was always in a hurry. But I never knew what for... Now the party’s over. The drugs are taking themselves. And I’m going home.”
