This song is a response to Brand New's song "Seventy Times 7." Jessie Lacey of Brand New's girlfriend cheated on him with John Nolan of Taking Back Sunday. John called Jessie to tell him and Jessie said, "Is that what you call tact? You're as subtle as a brick in the small of my back. So let's end this call, and end this conversation." That's why these lyrics are in both of the songs. The two have now made up and are friends again and even perform these two songs together. (thanks, Amanda - Longview, TX)

Susanna Hoffs - "Eternal Flame"
The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
