Mika described the story behind the song in an interview with the Sun newspaper February 2, 2007: "I was really happy when I wrote this and when I'm in that kind of mood I always hope everyone else feels the same way. Everybody is looking for the same thing - to love someone and be loved back. Or just to get laid. It all depends on how you look for it. 'Love Today' captures that, the euphoric feeling you get when those things go right."
Mika revealed to The London Times November 20, 2009 that the song came fully formed "after the first time I had sleepy with somebody and actually loved it."
