This song was recorded by the School of Seven Bells' Benjamin Curtis in hospital shortly before his death from cancer in December 2013. "It was a very spontaneous decision to record this track," said vocalist Alejandra Deheza. "Benjamin had been talking about the song a lot, and then he just decided he was going to do it. We couldn't record vocals in the hospital, so he actually Facetimed with me and his brother while we recorded vocals in the studio."
"He spearheaded the whole thing on Facetime, would even tell us which knobs to turn and listen to levels etc," she continued. "We'd even see nurses in the background from time to time! It was really amazing. But that was Benjamin, and producing was what he did. It was therapeutic and took his mind off being really sick. This song was really important to him and I'm happy we were able to record it."
The song was written by Joey Ramone and can be found on his 2002 posthumous album, Don't Worry About Me.
The TV show Cheers was nearly canceled after its first season, but the theme song, "Where Everybody Knows Your Name," was very popular. To satisfy viewer demand, the theme was made into a full song and released as a single.
