White Denim built their own studio in a house overlooking Lake Travis in Texas for Corsicana Lemonade. This song was inspired by some feathered neighbors. "There were a family of vultures living somewhere in the brush underneath the patio," explained vocalist James Petralli to The Guardian. "In the morning they would start growling and just go nuts. There were, like, 20 of them. It was actually pretty scary."
Petralli changed the species of bird to make it all sound slightly more romantic.
The Flaming Lips' "Do You Realize??" was named in March 2009 the official Rock Song of Oklahoma. Four years later, Oklahoma's governor Mary Fallin pulled the tune as the state's official rock song in a move her office said had more to do with priorities than musical taste.
