"Too Little Too Late" is a single by the Barenaked Ladies from their 2000 album, Maroon. The single included a remix of another single from Maroon, "Pinch Me". Another version was also released as a "Special Enhanced CD Single" with album art work based on the song's music video. The song is also featured on the band's 2001 compilation album, Disc One: All Their Greatest Hits. The song was written by Ed Robertson and Steven Page, and sung by Page.

Music video[edit]

The music video, directed by Phil Harder, is about the stresses of making a music video, in which the director forces them to record and re-record the video several times. At the end of the video, the director calls for a cut, and asks to record it again, prompting Page to scream. The screaming is not actually Steven's voice. The actual video shoot was the band's longest, lasting three days. It was filmed in the middle of a string of radio station promotional appearances.
