Hey, when we set up to record this, we had no intention of going silly. As soon as I asked her "do you want me to count you in?", it was all over and we turned into jokers. Its an inside joke with our band, and family, where we make fun of this song as the original version, by Coby Calet, starts with "Will you count me in?", a line that annoys my wife (a classocally trained soprano, and our band vocalist) and her best friend (our band's other vocalist, also classically trained soprano). So to screw with them when we play this song, I ask that question. Though everyone seems to like the song, and it tends to get played at half our shows, and my daughter loves it. I think its cheesy, but then again, I like Motorhead and early Black Sabbath.
Also, Guinevere has ADHD, and so do I. Our medication had worn off by this time and it shows. We tried to play "What I am" by Edie Brickell and the New Bohemians after this song, only with Guinevere doing a "Beatbox" thing instead of a guitar solo. It went horribly as it took us 10 takes, and by that time we were exhaused. We're gonna hold off for a few days and try again, the beatbox thing she came up with is beyond hilarious, it so totally doesnt fit the song.
The Stairway riff is more an homage to Waynes World.
Guitar Store Clerk: "Dude, cant you read the sign?"
sign: "Positively No Stairway!"
