A track on the last album he released for EMI Records, Marx tells us that this song is one of his personal favorites. Says Richard: "I think it's one of the most clever songs I've ever written if you listen just to the music. The music to "Everything Good," and even the title, which is kind of funny, is this really bouncy mid-tempo shuffle. If anything sounds like a happy song, it's this tune. And the lyric is borderline suicidal. So I really love that I went, 'Oh, you know what I'm going to do? I'm going to completely flip this s--t. I'm going to completely write the most dark, sad' – I mean, there's even a reference to suicide in the song, contemplating suicide. Because she took everything good. So it's not like (chirpy) 'Everything's good!' It's like (angry) 'You took everything good out of my life.' And so what I love about that song is if people are in the car and CD's on shuffle and that song comes on, I guarantee you're going to bop your head back and forth, because it's so bouncy and fun, and the lyric is so dark. So that's one of my favorites."
