  • Lyrics
  • Recorded in February 2003 for Amy's debut album Frank, the song never made it onto the final track listing. The tune's producer Salaam Remi in consultation with the late singer's family management and record label selected it as a one of the tracks on her first posthumous album, Lioness: Hidden Treasures.
  • The tune used to serve as Amy's live show opener and is the first song that early Winehouse fans would have heard live.
  • Remi explained the song's meaning to NME: "This was her taking the piss out of her best friend. She told me that her best friend would run out of the venue when the song was being played just because she couldn't believe that Amy was taking the piss out of her like that."
  • Amy's best friend Juliette Ashby was the subject of this song. She formed her first group with Juliette, in which they imitated their idols Salt 'N Pepa.
