Boku No Atama

Album: Spaceship One (2005)

Songfacts®:

  • Although written and recorded entirely in Japanese, it is safe to say this folkish type song will be appreciated more in Gilbert's native America than in the Land of the Rising Sun. The title translates as "My Head Is Made Of Tomatoes;" the lyrics, such as they are, are in the same vein, although they do appear to have a serious point. While most Paul Gilbert songs are constructed to demonstrate his mastery of the fretboard, this one was used as an aid to learning the language while he was working in Japan. >>

  • Emma from Princeton, NjThe title just means "My Head," actually. The "tomato" part's just in the song itself.
