White Wine and Fried Chicken

Album: Why Make Sense? (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • Co-vocalist Alexis Taylor said of the song to Q magazine: "I had the comic idea of bringing together the high and the low for a weird meal on a special occasion. The rest of the song's a bit more sincere. But then we realized it sounded like someone's last meal before they get executed."

    "You'd probably have a root beer with fried chicken, wouldn't you,?" he added "I would. If I ate chicken."
