I really love this song. It's one of my favorites on PH.
Last year, we could bring in a CD to school and they would play one song in music class, and I played this for everyone.
Everyone loved it!

It was an extra on Poodle Hat that was accessible on a CD-ROM player. Apparently, you can't access it anymore. :(
4 words that Al said to me that blew me away:

"How's Problem Child doing?" - 7/12/11

So awesome!

You mean it's accesible on CD player but not computer? How weird, I didn't know CDs could work like that :oo . Pity :?

Poodle Hat is an enhanced CD. Extras are only accessible on a CD-ROM player. The software used to put those files there is outdated. Al had some home movies on there as well. You can find some of the extras online, except for the Al and Ben mix of this song. At least, I haven't been able to find it.

Basically - if WDTAHTM is a Ben Folds Five style parody, the Al and Ben mix is a Ben Folds solo act style parody.

It's basically a stripped down version of the song which removes Al and the bands' background vocals, Steve's bass and Bermuda's percussion leaving only Al's lead vocals and Ben's piano track (hence "Al and Ben mix")

Anyone know if the Al and Ben version is available to stream anywhere? I've found other tracks from the Poodle Hat enhanced CD on YouTube, but can't seem to find this one.
