Random facts: Kurt is good friends with Ed Robertson from the Barenaked Ladies, and
the two of them decided to write a song together for Kurt to skate to.
The two of them wrote this song on Ed's guitar in Kurt's living room
one night when they got together for dinner, and Ed put the song on a
CD the next day for Kurt. It took 3 years for Kurt to find the right
time to use it, which turned out to be his first Gotta Skate special
in Vancouver. The audience in Vancouver was treated to Kurt skating
to Ed performing live, while both were miked and goofing off with each
other. Kurt subsequently used this program as one of his two solos in
Stars on Ice that year, using the recording that Ed had given him.
