This is a track from Poses
, Wainwright's second album. He was signed to DreamWorks Records, which had Steven Spielberg as an investor and very deep pockets. The label didn't push Rufus for hits, and none of the songs from his first two albums were released as singles. "Cigarettes And Chocolate Milk" stands as one of his most popular songs, but Wainwright may be best known for his cover of "Hallelujah
," which was used in the 2001 movie Shrek
, a DreamWorks production.
