* ButLiquorIsQuicker - Part of the story behind "Hey, Eugene!" They were both buzzed (though Eugene's skinhead friend was smashed... and they were both buzzed enough to not notice a completely drunk skinhead staggering out of an elevator). The other part is WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief that anyone would get [[http://wweek.com/photos/3415/large/10410.jpg China Forbes']] phone number and never call back.

* TheOneThatGotAway - A few songs, such as the melancholy "Kikuchiyo To Mohshimasu" and "Veronique," the upbeat "The Gardens of Sampson & Beasley" and possibly the tragic "Piensa en Mi."

Added DiffLines:

* ObsessedWithFood: Lorenzo in "But Now I'm Back" is so obsessed with food he has to interrupt his romantic rendezvous with his (increasingly impatient) girlfriend in order to get a snack with the boys. At least, food is his excuse...

* BreakUpSong - "And Then You're Gone" is, from Maria's perspective, definitely a BreakUp song, as she asserts she's sick of Lorenzo's flakiness, and that their relationship is over. Hilariously, Lorenzo is in blissful denial, as expressed in "But Now I'm Back".

* ManicPixieDreamGirl - "Lilly," even though "Lilly." The Lilly in the song's actually about song is wild and rambunctious, and completely turns the nameless guy's life around. Disregarding the fact that the original Lilly is a dog.dog -- "Lilly, stay!" -- the song could work very well.

* BilingualBonus - This is a very multilingual band. They've sung in English, French, Italian, Spanish, Japanese, Croatian, Arabic, Portuguese, Turkish, Greek... and with their holiday album alone they add Hebrew, Ukrainian, German, Ladino, and Chinese to the list. And they're trying to get Armenian in at some point.
