Health was an obsession for Brian (especially during the SMILE period; i.e "I'm In Great Shape", "Vegatables", his diatribe about L.A. smog) and this collaboration with Al is a humourous ode to foot care a la "H.E.L.P. Is On The Way", the unrelased ADULT CHILD song, "Life Is For The Living", and the B-side to the "Love and Mercy" single, "He Couldn't Get His Poor Old Body To Move".
