Can we verify this is actually a cover...?

Good point. Ersel Hickey could have been stage name of 10 year old Robert Plant, the child prodigy who first  recorded it back in 1958, in which case it would be a re-recording, technically.

I initially thought this could be an original song with the same name.  I found the answer myself though:

If the Wolves were the 8 seed, I think the state would be pretty depressed. After the Butler trade, and then even more the Teague, Gibson, and Crawford signings, nobody would be happy with 8 seed. I think 3-6 is what the expected range is.

As for Houston, I'm curious how that works. Paul is obviously, hugely ball dominant. And Harden has become among the most ball-dominant players in the league since moving to Houston. It'll be tough to imagine those two being happy together. Nobody is a Lamar Odom, a Toni Kukoc, a Scottie Pippen. They both want the ball every possession.

Did you ghost write SIP in 1992 then?

What kind of god do you take me for?

If you are indeed a God of humor then why don't you try to come up with some Al/Sal/Pete/Libueno ideas to jump-start the moribund Jardine thread, in honor of Zeppo Wilson (not to mention Gummo). It's silly but there's great opportunity for creativity there, although it requires a certain type. But I digress.

Here's the latest minor addition. David Anderle's revelation regarding Brian's view on humor & violence (found in the SMiLE box set book) is supported by Brian's fave book, The Act Of Creation. Don't know if anyone else has made this connection before.

"The key word for Brian was humor. He would see the solutions to all problems in terms of humor. If people could laugh about things or feel good about things, you wouldn't have violence. You can't have humor and violence, really. I think that's the essence of Brian. It starts with humor, happiness, love."
~David Anderle

"When we laugh...the pleasurable relief does not derive from a consummatory act which satisfies some specific need. On the contrary: laughter prevents the satisfaction of biological drives, it makes a man equally incapable of killing or copulating; it deflates anger, apprehension, and pride."
~ Arthur Koestler from The Act of Creation

In the Joe Thomas interview from a couple years ago, Joe tells a story about ‘Think About The Days’ - Brian wrote all the vocal parts but the demo was done all by Jeff Foskett (as Brian couldn’t hit some of the high notes, so why not just have Jeff do the whole thing). I’m not sure at all the same thing happened for this intro, but I wouldn’t be surprised.

Was that in ESQ, or somewhere else? Would love to read the whole thing (if I haven't already and simply forgotten about it...)

Wow, is there a clip of that?

IIRC, they would do it in the first set as a little teaser for the full performance of the album in the second set. So not more than 30 second to a minute. But still, a cool little thing.

At one point, it was widely speculated that Scott had written Southern California because he sang it on the demos (which I believe leaked before the finished album did). That wasn't true either. What Brian did write, without a doubt, was the TLOS round, which you can hear only at a low volume at the end of the album, and is a pure wall of wacky BW. They performed it as a separate song at some concerts.
