Jackson explained in press materials why he chose to make this song the title track of his sixteenth album: "I'd been kicking around several songs to title the album after, like 'It's Just That Way
' and 'Every Now and Then.' But they sounded too much like album titles I'd already had, like Who I Am
, and What I Do
... I've had about every other vehicle—boats, cars, motorcycles— but I'd never had a train on the album cover."
