March of the Pipettepedes
|"March of the Pipettepedes"|
|Song by Rivers Cuomo|
|Status||Sheet music released|
"March of the Pipettepedes" is not known to have been recorded, but the song appears as sheet music in Cuomo's book The Pinkerton Diaries. A small segment towards the end appears to have formed the basis for the melody to "Wanda (You're My Only Love)", written two months later. The song is not listed in the Catalog O' Riffs.
A "pipettepede" is a creature, made out of a pipette, doodled by Cuomo in 7th grade science class. As Cuomo told fans on Riverchat in September of 2021, Cuomo and friend Justin Fisher created numerous similar creatures known as "fiberts." During the 90s, Cuomo included drawings of pipettepedes on letters and in his fax cover sheet header.
