Overview

This song takes place in Act II. In this song the three main male characters, Jonas, Wuan and Dondó sing about how the ship is finally landing after 327 days in space. It shows how excited and more upbeat Wuan and Dondó are and how timid and quiet Jonas is about the situation of landing. In this way the song is similar to "Blast Off!" with a nervous and pessimistic Jonas clashing with the joyous Wuan and Dondó. The song is mainly a cappella, with the three characters all singing their points of view over each other. Some acoustic guitar appears near the end of the song.

This song was released on Alone: The Home Recordings of Rivers Cuomo. The demo version features "scratch" lyrics, as they were unfinished at the time it was recorded.

Lyrics

"Dude, We're Finally Landing"

[WUAN:]
Dude

[DONDO:]
Dude

[WUAN:]
Dude

[JONAS:]
What?

[WUAN and DONDO:]
Good news, good news, good news
Now we're finally landing
M1's started scanning
For a possible source
Of the distress call we received

[JONAS:]
What's so damn important
That you feel that it's necessary
To interrupt me
In my pod

[WUAN, DONDO, and JONAS:]
Now we're finally landing
Now we're finally landing
Get your stuff together
'Cause now we're finally gonna land

[WUAN and DONDO:]
Good news, good news, good news
Good news, good news, good news
Good news, good news, good news
Good news, good news, good news

[JONAS:]
So who gives a damn?
