About[]

When the Rutles were recording the Triangular Album, they were running out of ideas for songs, which caused filler like "Wild Bunny Rum Cake", "Everybody's Got Something To Show Except Me And My Chimpanzee", and "Why Don't We Get Naked and Have A Special Hug In The Middle Of New York?". Ron had an idea for another song: when it was the afternoon, he sang a special song to his son, Rude Nasty. So, he gave the song to Barry to sing. The other Rutles did not like it, so they put it in the back behind Evolution #10, hoping nobody would get past that song. The song is also notorious because Barry was the only Rutle participating in the recording, and there were no instruments in it. Despite this, it appeared on the "Top 1 Songs to Sing Only during the Afternoon" list by Rolling Stone magazine.
