    What is “William Wilson” about?

    This song, from Smithereens 11, is explained thus (again from the Second Joe Clark Tapes):

    Joe: “William Wilson,” the same story: Would you please explain?

    Pat: “William Wilson” started out as “Brian Wilson.” It was lyrically meant to be about a self-destructive person, and then I saw something on television, a news story, about a son and a father who were reunited after not having seen each other for 20 or 30 years, and then there was an Edgar Allan Poe story called “William Wilson” which, ironically, was also about someone who was self-destructive. So we combined all that lyrically. Then I found out that the guy who founded A.A. was named William Wilson.

    Dennis: Oh, yeah? [Snort]

    Pat: You never knew that?

    Dennis: I never knew that.

    Joe: Synchronicity.
