The 'Untethered Moon' title comes from a lyric in this song. Frontman Doug Martsch told Under The Radar magazine: "The album title already existed long before we knew the words to that song. Then the song was put together and that was just thrown in at the end like an afterthought, just to tie things together."
Martsch wrote several different variants of lyrics for the song before settling on this version. He explained: "Some stuff you can sort of sing whatever and it doesn't have to have any kind of a theme. But certain melodies, or something about a song make it so the words become more important. Like, I think on 'All Our Songs,' the words kind of mesh into the music a little more."
"Whereas 'On the Way,' the melody was so upfront and focused, the words couldn't be too obscure. I tried to tell a little bit of a story, keeping it to one theme instead of just lines. I don't know why I came up with the Mars thing. Space stuff is always rad."
To the younger crowd, "A Little Less Conversation" is one of the most popular Elvis Presley songs. Peaking at #50 when it was released in 1968, it got new life in the '00s when it was used in the movies Lilo And Stitch and Ocean's Eleven.
