ok. For “Oh Yeah”, I like the confusion between (conflation of?) sarcasm and sincerity in the verse and even in the chorus, which i always think of as confessional in a classic pop music sense. I’m never really convinced about the tone of it, and that off-balance feeling appeals to me. I also like the swingy sing-a-longy-ness that happens with this tune, what with the Kinks-y ooohs coming in and Tim’s stuttering drum rolls in the first “i r- i r- i really…” part at the end right when the vocal is kinda falling apart. It’s like the drums sorta mirror what’s going on with the narrator. - Sadie
