Someone on the Shop board the other dayposted an interesting theory that I have *not*been able to shake from my mind --the notion that "Little Pad" may have been a fragmentfrom DYLW. I see it as highly plausible. Thoughts?

You know...every one in a while I think this and say "OF COURSE!" Yet Ijust can't put my finger on what it is about the two songs...Now, what REALLY sticks out -- "Whistle In" and "Do You Like Worms" --mainly the fake Hawaiian lyrics at the end of DYLW and how they fit inwith the melody of "Whistle In."

They have a newfound (appropriated) calm. OR maybe it's appended beforehand -- "Sure would like to have a little pad in Hawaii" so off we go, steaming across the Sandwich Isles! It's the strumming ukelele that so neatly mirrors the strident pulse of DYLW.And I'm still no closer to defining the connection! :-)> Now, what REALLY sticks out -- "Whistle In" and "Do You Like Worms" --> mainly the fake Hawaiian lyrics at the end of DYLW and how they fit in> with the melody of "Whistle In." That's cool -- I never thought of that! "Whistle In" is a perfect re-working of the keenee-waka-poolah part, yeah! Makes sense in light of Brian's other recyclings. (Don't get started on DO A LOT, heehee)

I see it as highly plausible.Same here I've been humming the songs to myself since I read the postbut something seems wrong while at the same time it seems right. Dunno but it a possibilty.
