JD Mcpherson spoke about this track on the album:

“I think there are at least six or seven charted songs with that title. Shirley & Lee did a woooonderful song called ‘Let the Good Times Roll.’ But mine is influenced by Eddie Cochran. This is the song where we discovered electric bass, which is a new thing for us. I know it seems strange for a band to say ‘Yeah we’re writing around electric bass now. It’s like a new instrument,’ but Jimmy Sutton is such an adept acoustic bassist, and that’s his wheelhouse — that’s what he was put here to do. But getting that electric bass out has been so fun. Sometimes you have to pull yourself back a little back, because your urge is to go totally Dee Dee Ramone with it and just go as fast and hard as possible, so you have to finesse it a little bit. But man, there’s something about tambourine on top of that bass. That, to me, sounds like rock & roll.

“This is one people really respond to live. But this song only exists because of expired Tylenol PM. I was sick in bed, and took this expired cold medicine, and it was the worst thing ever. Time slowed down, and I was having trouble breathing.

Meanwhile, I was watching this Frasier episode where they were remembering a childhood Shakespearian production, and I’m seeing Niles holding this skull, saying ‘Alas, poor Yorick.’ And I just started thinking about high school Shakespeare, and I wrote this song about one of his plays. I don’t know if I want to give that part away. The thing to carry away is that this is maybe the strangest song I’ve ever written.”
