Songfacts®:

  • This tune which was written by Band of Horses' bass player Bill Reynolds and drummer Creighton Barrett, was an outtake from the group's 2010 album, Infinite Arms. The song was included on the soundtrack for the third Twilight movie, Eclipse, but it doesn't directly reference vampire/werewolf matters. "I don't know crap about it [Twilight]," lead singer Ben Bridwell admitted to Dose.ca. "But I know it seems nice. They have good taste in music," he continued, referring to the 2009 New Moon Soundtrack. "They had Thom Yorke on it last time, and Grizzly Bear. I mean, they put really really cool soundtracks together."
