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."
