The record was supposed to be called “Place Pigalle”

“The record was supposed to be called “Place Pigalle”. Actually, I had two songs called “Place Pigalle”, then I removed them, then I thought I should keep at least one if I was going to use that name for the record. Then… I also had that other song called “Figure 8″ that didn’t end up on the record, either. What I liked about that title was the evocation of a skating figure where you get as close as you can to the perfect 8. I loved that idea of an endless quest for perfection.”

Elliott Smith
