{{#song:Overhead }}

"Overhead" is a song on Jonathan Coulton's first album, Smoking Monkey.


  • According to the Smoking Monkey info page, Jonathan says "Overhead" "might be my favorite unappreciated B-side."
  • According to awryone of the JoCo forums, who is a friend of Jonathan's, this song has no overarching narrative meaning, other than Jonathan liking puzzles. From awryone: "Our friend Adam Sachs, blogger of note, coined the phrase, 'Once in a while, I go out of my way, to kill you, a little.'Jon thought it was great, and wrote a song around it. Like a challenge. That's it."



"Overhead" is available for purchase in the Jonathan Coulton MP3 Store as an individual track or as part of Smoking Monkey. Of course, this song is also included as part of the "Everything" playlist.

Downloadable FLAC versions of the above are available in the Jonathan Coulton FLAC Store
