MacDonald penned this air-punching anthem when stuck in a rut during the tail end of her tour for the A Curious Thing album, she found herself questioning whether being a musician was a worthwhile occupation. "It's very rare that I write about myself," she said. "But that song is me pondering what I'm doing with my life. My sister's a doctor, she helps people every day. Do I help people? I thought about it and realised that making music is a contribution. I get so many letters from fans saying they feel better when they listen to my songs. So I'm not as bad as I thought!"
The seemingly inoffensive song, "Deep In The Heart Of Texas," was banned by the BBC when it was released in 1942. They deemed the song too catchy, with authorities in wartime Britain concerned that factory workers would be distracted if they heard it during a shift.
