Songfacts®:

  • "She Looks Like Fun" finds Alex Turner shouting out seemingly random words.

    Good morning
    (She looks like fun)
    Cheeseburger
    (She looks like fun)
    Snowboarding
    (She looks like)


    Turner explained to Pitchfork: "It's about the characters that people create in that virtual world. As far as the 'cheeseburger' line, I was actually watching an episode of the show High Maintenance, and there's a part where the person's taking their picture with a cheeseburger and posting it and all this. That part in the song also reminds me of when you're reading a book and trying to get into it, but you can't stop from looking at your phone. I might have been doing a bit of that when I was writing the song."
  • Australian multi-instrumentalist Cam Avery contributes backing vocals. She is best known for being a member of the bands Pond and Tame Impala.
