Yusuf Islam receives 75% of all royalties on this song, in case anyone was worried he's getting completely ripped off.

This is a great song. I wrote off the Flaming Lips as a one hit wonder about fifteen years ago, but Pandora has changed my mind.

Erin was just covering her bases. Can't throw around that you love a song without proper research.

This is def Cat Stevens' "Father and Son," but still a cool song by The Flaming Lips.

If you give credit and royalty fees, which they had to do, it is hardly thievery.

It took Erin eight days to check the lyrics? You can do that on the internet now, you know? You don't have to write to the record label anymore.
