{{Alone liner notes|I took some time out from writing my own songs and from collaborating with Pat to record one of Gregg Alexander's songs. I was in love with the over-the-top personal emotionalism of his vocal performances and lyrics. I pictured him at sixteen, breaking down in his dark little vocal booth, crying as he was singing his songs, which was pretty much how he was presented in the CD booklet. Gregg Alexander's music was a beacon leading me towards more personal emotionalism in my own art. I was subletting a room from another musician who had taken off to Australia for a while. He had left behind a nylon string acoustic guitar, which I happily used to record this song, and a bunch of ineffectual acoustic foam on the walls. I dreaded the thought of being heard while I was emoting like this so I embraced the illusion of privacy provided by the foam.|''[[Alone: The Home Recordings of Rivers Cuomo]]'' [[Alone liner notes|liner notes]]}}
