maybe a song about multiple hurricanes back in 2009/2010 hitting Dupree (South Dakota) or a song about the movie Badlands...?

Guitarist Cornell Luther Dupree?

I like this trope.
I know the way I can see by the moonlight
Clear as the day
Now come on woman, come follow me home

A guy called Bill Labounty played in a band called Fat Chance. He was also friends with someone called Robbie Dupree. Not saying this is the background, but Mark can make the strangest and obscurest connections and write songs about it.

Am I the only one, or does anyone else really like this one? I’m not saying it’s a masterpiece or better than any of the tracks on the main album, but there is something about this one that keeps me coming back to keep listening again. Lovely little song, I say.

I like it, not a favorite, but a good one. I would had included it in the record for sure.

It's a grower for certain. I just took the time to listen to it a couple of times. I just could not get out of the Janine loop.  :lol  Nice playing from Greg Leisz and cool background vocals by the boys. Now I try to figure out what it's about.

I don't want no sugar in it, thank you very much!

Who, what is Dupree?

He is a trapper who came down from the Mountain. It's a Wild West scenario, the music implies a Saloon scenery to me. There is even a Kitty Mary, the most beautiful woman in town. If it is a metaphor and for what, I haven't yet worked out.

This really is a good one, really like it. I found myself whistling it at work yesterday which is a good sign.
From the same family as Stand Up Guy. Should have been on the album as a nice variation.

I like this a lot too and agree it should have been on the album, together with The Living End and also Along a Foreign Coast.

I love this one, 4 of the 5 CD bonus songs are really excellent and all very different style wise. It makes a great EP.

Yes. I only saw the answer today. Thank you. Finally we can listen to the album with lyrics.
