"Used To Think" was composed in preparation for Spencer McGillicutty's third album "All The Happy People!" Ryan wrote it as a sort of a little brother song to Mitchell's "Tell," from that album. "Used To Think" was originally conceived of as an acoustic finger-picking song, but was re-imagined by Tyler Tholl for this recording.
On a side note - Wes Anderson, if you are reading this, you have our blessings to use this in any future project.
