The Impression That I Get是The Mighty Mighty Bosstones——这支由8个人组成的Ska Punk乐队于1997年发行的专辑Let's Face It里的第一首单曲。Let's Face It是一张很受欢迎的作品。欢快的节奏、明朗的旋律以及主唱略带滑稽的嗓音,形成了The Mighty Mighty Bosstones个性鲜明的风格。而The Impression That I Get更是其中的代表。这首歌曾多次被用作影视插曲,在Friends的第四季第十六集中,Rachel想“勾引”她的一个顾客Josh,于是假借为Emily送行为由举办了一个Party,Party上也用到了这首歌。
