I like the acoustic one on Mashed Potatoes. It's very soothing while being slightly melancholy. Is it just me or do the guitars and drums have kind of an Indian feel to them?

I never really cared for this song.

It feels as though it's in the same vein as Pennies, from the Zero single. They're those kind of songs that I won't probably purposefully select on a playlist, but that I'll listen to as the album plays through because they're pleasant enough.

Yeah, Smiley is MUCH better. Probably because it came from an era where there weren't 60+ complete STUDIO versions of B-sides. Pennies was part of a clump of songs. Smiley was only one of a few.

the one where d'arcy farts in the background. it is very faint, as if the nicest, tightest little asshole produced butt waft.
