best of the 00's: time to pretend - mgmt


The track was originally recorded for the Time to Pretend (EP) (2005). It was re-recorded for the Oracular Spectacular album.

From a quote from live at Abbey Road:
“ We wrote Time to Pretend our senior year of college, and the music was inspired by a praying mantis we had in our house. She laid eggs and it died, and we laid the egg case on this kinda model pirate ship on the mantle piece, and the eggs hatched and all these baby praying mantises were climbing up the rigging of the ship, and it was pretty crazy...uhm so the music was inspired by our praying mantis that liked to dance to the Clash {laugh} and the lyrics are just about us imagining being rock stars....and yea fantasy rock star life.
