Grammer penned this ethereal song to reassure himself that he shouldn't be chasing radio hits but instead be writing genuinely. "I'm just trying to track down the truth," said the Los Angeles-born performer. "My favorite thing is writing from a bird's-eye view, whether it's a breakup or a good relationship. I like to be far enough away to see the whole scope of what's occurring."
The song "Sadeness" by Enigma (the one with the chanting monks), got its name from the French novelist Marquis de Sade, who believed sex had to be painful in order to be pleasurable - thus the word "sadism."
"The Night Chicago Died" was written and recorded by the British group Paper Lace. They talk about Al Capone in the song, but got a lot of details wrong - understandable since they wrote it based on gangster movies.
