Album: A Curious Thing (2010)

  • Lyrics
  • This pogo-pop belter is one of a clutch of uptempo songs on A Curious Thing and is typical of the bigger sound of the tracks on the album, compared with MacDonald's first release. "That's because I've just toured constantly,' she explained in publicity materials, 'and just spent all that time with my band, who are all amazing musicians, who spend their spare time on the stage jamming to anything. We've actually done the most ridiculous things, like spending ages making reggae versions of the whole first album! Those experiences made me think we could get in a lot of instruments and make this really big-sounding album."
  • MacDonald identified this song as "one of those kooky album tracks that keeps the flow going along."
  • A Curious Thing was recorded at Paul Weller's Black Barn Studios. The Modfather plays guitar on this track and also plays bass on "This Pretty Face." Macdonald explained to Contactmusic.com: "I supported Paul Weller back in 2007, and I think that was probably the first tour that I did. He was just really nice. He stayed in touch, and even came to a few of my shows. He said to my manager that if we ever needed a studio to record in we could use his. So this album was actually recorded in his personal studio. It was just incredible. It had all of his memorabilia and awards there. It was just so much more inspiring being somewhere like that which had all of these things on the wall."
