Bill Murray

  • songfacts ®
  • Lyrics
  • The New York duo Phantogram are best known for their track "When I'm Small," which was used both in the trailer of the 2012 film Syrup and an advert for Canon's 650D camera. The pair, which comprises vocalist Sarah Barthel and guitarist Josh Carter, also contributed to three tracks on Big Boi's Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors album.
  • Carter explained to The Atlantic why this ballad about loneliness was titled after the comic actor. "We named it 'Bill Murray' because we always pictured a sad Bill Murray for the visuals of that song," he said. "We want him to be in the music video."
  • The ballad samples the Chi-Lites' tune "Coldest Day of My Life."
