LD Beghtol writes that, "This song is also heavily influenced by The Three O'Clock [link], an LA 'paisley underground' band Stephin and Claudia loved in the 80s, whose terrific first two albums have just recently been released on CD".
Also from the booklet: Daniel Handler: "I think there will be people who hear this song think that '...and he's going to be my wife' is a gay marriage statement". Stephin Merritt: "Well, I suppose it is".
'Everyone thinks he's Petula'
A reference to Petula Clark [link], who is pictured with Claudia Gonson in the 69 Love Songs booklet.
