Lissa Hattersley's Top 7 Greezy Wheels
"[The former] is originally on HipPop, and [the latter] from Juz Loves Dem Ol' Greezy Wheels. Both were written by Cleve and are favorites, or I wouldn't have put them on my new CD."
'So Sad, What a Dilemma'
"On our first album and a personal favorite. I sang it. And it was jazzier than our country and rock stuff, part of the turn we took away from the 'outlaw country' path early on."
'Heartburn (I'm a Menace)'
"It was basically about karma but inspired by a Kurt Vonnegut story. One time we played the Bottom Line in New York, and Vonnegut was in the audience, so I had him autograph a copy of the sheet music for it, now long lost."
"From HipPop, about a serial killer. Really spooky ... and the string arrangement really sells the story. Mary's violin in this song kills, as do the guitar and seven-string bass."
'There's a Monkey in the Church'
"It's not about Curious George! Fun to sing, and the record has a great guitar break from guest Chris Duarte."
'I Just Like Being a Girl'
"This was my chance to harmonize with myself on a beautiful song Cleve wrote specifically for me. (I did personalize the lyric just a tad.) We ended up putting it on Millennium Greezy and String Theory."
