Basement Jaxx' Simon Ratcliffe wrote this song for his daughter. He recalled to Artist Direct: "I had a vocoder I was singing through. We got Sam Brookes who sang on another song. The melody of the vocal is almost country. He suited it perfectly."
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."
"Abracadabra" was inspired by Diana Ross and The Supremes. Steve Miller first met the girl group when they performed together on NBC's Hullabaloo in 1966, and he wrote the lyrics after spotting Diana Ross skiing in the mountains years later.
