Little Fluffy Clouds" is centered around clips from an interview with Rickie Lee Jones in which she recalls to LeVar "Geordi La Forge" Burton picturesque images of her childhood.

Critics and fans sometimes attribute the odd nasal tonality of Rickie Lee Jones' voice to drug use, though Jones later claimed that it was the result of a heavy cold.

Burton: "What were the skies like when you were young?"
Jones: "They went on forever – They - When I - We lived in Arizona, and the skies always had little fluffy clouds in 'em, and they were long, clear, and there were lots of stars, at night. And when it would rain, they would all turn - They were beautiful, the most beautiful skies as a matter of fact. Um, the sunsets were purple and red and yellow and on fire, and the clouds would catch the colors everywhere. That's uh, neat cause I used to look at them all the time, when I was little. You don't see that. You might still see it in the desert."
Jones was upset at the use of her voice being used without permission and pursued the issue in the legal system.

The song also uses a harmonica sample from Ennio Morricone's The Man With The HarmonicaOnce Upon a Time in the West) and parts of Electric Counterpoint and a piece for multitracked guitars composed by Steve Reich and recorded by Pat Metheny.
