Eels - "Selective memory"
"If I lay my head down I will see you in my dream" : E (vocals) effects a childlike falsetto to sing the first lines of this very calm song that officially closes Eels' 3rd album, before a hidden track ("Grace Kelly blues") kicks up the tempo and ends the album on a different vibe.
E wrote the song in the middle of the night in his kitchen.
During the recording, E played on the same piano Neil Young used on his classic album "After the Goldrush".
Interestingly, E sampled a piece of this song (the strings part) to create a whole new song called "Fresh feeling" that appeared on Eels' fourth album "Souljacker".
Available on the album "Daisies Of The Galaxy"
