What's funny is that when that album first came out, a lot of us wrote off the whole thing as a throwaway and the band was getting ready to give it up. Then the single hit, Freeze Frame exploded, and Peter Wolf left the band anyway.
This song reminds me of a recurring theme in my childhood: My sister thought this was the greatest song in the world. Made me listen to it several times. (I was 11, she was 13.) Kept trying to get me to understand why it was so great, and then called me stupid for not getting it. Which I still don't.
