Songfacts®:

  • Johnson: "'Do You Remember' was one that for some reason just popped in my head all of a sudden. I was driving one day, and had this little riff going on in my head. After that, the song just wrote itself pretty quick. It's just a simple love song with some personal moments I wasn't afraid to share. Just kind of silly things like me locking my bike to my wife's - who wasn't even my girlfriend back then, but just this girl I was trying to get - so she couldn't ride off after class. It's just stuff I thought might make people laugh and feel good. It's kind of like Bubble Toes, Part 2."

  • Andrea from Sønderborg, DenmarkIn the song he claims, they've been together for "over ten years". Do any of you know exactly how many years they've been together?
  • Andrea from Sønderborg, DenmarkGod, I love this song. I agree with both of you guys. It's amazing, and I remember hearing it for the first time. It made me cry more than ones. You can just picture him, being all silly in love, experiencing all these wonderful stuff. And now they're married. She must fall in love with him all over again, when she hears this song. I do.
