Song: 'This Is Not a Pipe'
Sounds Like: Gogol Bordello
In Their Words: "Some people ask me, 'Franz, you seem like an optimistic person - what's the secret? If you wrote a self-help book, 'Seven Steps To A Better You,' say, what would steps one through three be?' And I say, 'I do have an answer, but it's not necessarily the one you're looking for.' You see, I have low expectations. I don't mind people, but I don't expect that much from them, individually or collectively. And I don't mind getting up in the morning, but I don't expect that much from the day. But as a result, I live in a near-constant state of pleasant surprise. Which is not exactly Norman Vincent Peale and the 'Power of Positive Thinking,' but it works for me. So this is a song about that. It was inspired by two passages from Nicole Krauss' novel 'A History of Love' (with the kind blessing of the author)." - Franz Nicolay
