"Hey Baby, Here's That Song You Wanted" is the first song that lead singer Beau Bokan wrote for the Blessthefall. When the band was searching for their new singer, they asked Bokan to record vocals for a demo track they sent him. The verse and chorus so impressed the band that it led to a studio trial and invitation to join the band. This song was fleshed out into "Hey Baby, Here's That Song You Wanted."
The lyrics revolve around Bokan lamenting a crumbling relationship, and wondering if he can still save it. By the end of the song, he decides that something can be salvaged, and ponders what gesture he can make to set things right. This suggests that the song is self-referencing; written about the experience that led Bokan to write it.
The song appears on Blessedthefall's 2009 sophomore album, Witness. Beau said that the album was very personal for him. The singer lost a lot of loved ones over the years before recording it, and explained that much of that pent-up emotion was finally released in songs written for the album.
"Hey Baby, Here's That Song You Wanted" was released as downloadable content for Rock Band on the Xbox 360.
"Sloop John B" is a traditional West Indian folk song, and it was a huge hit for The Beach Boys in 1966. They tweaked the lyric, "This is the worst trip since I've been born" to "...I've ever been on" as a wink to acid culture.
