Appearances

Overview

"Jodi" was recorded by Cuomo in 1999. The song was first heard when it was released as part of the digital compilation Alone VI: The Black Room in 2020. The song may or may not be named for Jodi Klemyk, Cuomo's girlfriend from 1988[1] whom Cuomo has described as his "first love."[2] The song's melody bears a resemblance to the demo "Crazy One," recorded months prior, though it is unknown if this similarity is a coincidence.

Lyrics

Jodi
Pack up your things and go home
I never wanted to see you alone
Why don't you give me a raise?

Jodi
I'll never see you again
Now that you have to be more than a friend
Why don't you give me a raise?

Love with you
I cannot do
The things that you
Want me to do
...
