This song was first played at the Dave & Tim show on 7.28.07
. The meaning of the name was revealed when Stefan said in an interview on Sirius satellite radio that this is the twenty-seventh song from the latest batch of songs the band has been working on. It's unclear when exactly Dave started numbering his songs again, but it was certainly no earlier than the Stand Up
The riff for #27 may have come from the intro to Hello Again
, much like Angel
's riff came from an intro to Jimi Thing
On the 2010 Europe tour, the official setlist page began listing the song as "#27 (Arms of a Women)" [sic] after Dave introduced the song by the subtitle.
A regular feature on the 2007 tour, #27 has seen a slow decline in number of plays each subsequent year since then.
