People Got A Lot of Nerve

Album: Middle Cyclone (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • Although the chorus of this incredibly catchy song by red-haired beauty Neko Case centers around the word "maneater" the title is "People Got A Lot of Nerve," a phrase which is not said during the song. Could she have avoided the title "Maneater" so as not to confuse the song with the Hall and Oates hit from the '80s? >>
