This is not the first Michael Franti
song title to contain the word "Hey." On this recording he makes hey with a treble 'Hey!' Franti explained as to why all the 'heys' on his website: "With 'Say Hey
' and 'Hey World' and now this, I guess 'Hey' is becoming a big word with me. At first this song was called, 'No Matter How Life Is Today.' But every time we walked offstage after having played it, people would say, 'Hey, where can we find that 'Hey, Hey, Hey' song.' So we actually did a vote online on our website about what we should call this. So the people have spoken, and they say, 'Hey.'"
