25. "Not That Funny"

Like many Tusk highlights, "Not That Funny" began as a solo Buckingham experiment, down in his home studio. It has lyrics in common with Tusk's "I Know I'm Not Wrong," but it's raunchier and rougher. "You have to allow yourself to get totally drawn into the music," he said in 1980. "Once you're there, the hardest thing to do is let yourself do anything outside that. I'd come out of my basement studio after about six hours, and Carol, my girlfriend, would be sitting in the living room watching TV or something, and I just wouldn't have much to say. My mind would be racing. I love it."
