I just heard the Ballad of Seymour Better Times for the first time today and fell madly in love with it! What a great song, great arrangement, great lyrics too! A new fave of mine. It does remind me a little of Rocky Raccoon in a way. Especially the "doot doot doots" Who else hears the Rocky Raccoon influence?

You're not wrong! They actually compared it to Rocky Raccoon themselves in this blog post. I got a huge kick out of it because my friend and I had recently had a friendly debate where I told her it reminded me of a song from Robin Hood and she said it was more like Rocky Raccoon. And then they went and posted a blog and said it was one part each :-p
Thanks, I haven't been on here regularly in months so that's cool to know.
