Lyrical question

Post by No You Are »

Hey all, gotta quick question for ya...

What are the backup lyrics Eric sings in Stupid, you know, when John goes into "and she says why didn't it happen between us".

Just wondering, so next time I am rocking out to that song in my car I can get all harmonic with my bad self.

This has been discussed before, only it was Sean singing at the time.

Look no further, friend

actually, I remember thinking when I saw them, that Eric doesn't sing the same thing as Sean
I'm not sure about this, though.
maybe one of those lucky ones who went to venues that do on the spot live cds could check this out?

"stupid I would feel if I..." he does the same.

It's the longer unintelligible part (what I hear as: "...if I was somewhere, what* I wouldn't...?.. oooh!") that Eric sings differently than Sean did. Not that I ever saw Sean perform it, but it's different than on the CD anyway.

*I just listened again: I'm changing that word to "else".

So, basically, since there is no consensus, if I just sing something about feeling stupid I'll be OK?

Sweet.

I think it's Mr. Kenneth Stringfellow singing back-up on Stupid on WIPTF.

That's totally Sean's voice. Sean and Ken both sang on Stupid:
