Kilopop! -- which I'm going to spell "Kilopop" hereafter -- is one of Chris Butler's many weird side projects. (Actually, they are his main projects; they are most people's side projects blown up.) You probably know one to three songs he wrote: "Square Pegs", "Christmas Wrapping", and the awesome "I Know What Boys Like".

Kilopop was a fake "second-most-popular" Europop band, with a "greatest hits" with "bonus tracks", and sober liner notes, of course. "Sure Wish That He Wasn't Here" is the leadoff track off of their only album, Un Petit Goûter.

Charming. It sounds like a lost minor pop single, which I suppose was the point.

I think so!

I really like the lyrics: bored.
