Does Geddy Talk Like an Ordinary Guy?

In its 2007 hit single “Stereo,” the alt-rock band Pavement wonders how Geddy’s voice got so high and whether he talks like an ordinary guy:

What about the voice of Geddy Lee?
How did it get so high?
I wonder if he speaks like an ordinary guy?

[The conclusion is that he does:]

I know him / And He does.

You’re my fact-checkin’ cuz.

Chick, chick, chick / Whoop / Chick, chick, chick

The video above is an 18-second clip of the band playing that part of the song on a 2007 episode of Late Night with Conan O’Brien.

 “Stereo” was one of two hits from the album Brighten the Corners. The other was “Shady Lane.”

Watch the song in its entirety. 

More This and That.
