<p>Oh! The Grandeur is Andrew Bird's second album with the Bowl of Fire. The first track, "Candy Shop", was recorded as a demo track for the then-upcoming Tim Robbins film, Cradle Will Rock (though the song did not appear in the film). Another track of note on this album is "Tea &amp; Thorazine," which was inspired by Bird's autistic brother's experience with mental institutions. The song mentions a "Dr. B" and Bird identifies him in the album liner notes as Bruno Bettelheim, an early autism researcher.
All songs written and composed by Andrew Bird, except where noted.</p>
