The fifth single from Underground Luxury finds B.o.B musing on the problem of addiction, particularity alcohol abuse, in our society.
The song features the vocals of Priscilla Renea. The singer-songwriter released her first studio album Jukebox in late 2009. As a songwriter, she has contributed to hit singles for Chris Brown ("Don't Wake Me Up"), Rihanna ("California King Bed"), Pitbull ("Timber") and Cheryl Cole ("Promise This").
John Doe (or Jane Doe) is the generic name given to unidentified bodies, or a person whose true identity must be withheld in a legal action, case, or discussion. Renea is saying on the hook that the man that she had originally met is not the one she is with now because of his alcoholism, which is why she is giving him the name John Doe.
The seemingly inoffensive song, "Deep In The Heart Of Texas," was banned by the BBC when it was released in 1942. They deemed the song too catchy, with authorities in wartime Britain concerned that factory workers would be distracted if they heard it during a shift.
The chorus of "Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir" in "Lady Marmalade" is French for "Do you want to sleep with me tonight?" When Labelle performed it on television, they had to change it to "Voulez-vous danser avec moi ce soir" (Do you want to dance with me tonight?).
The TV show Cheers was nearly canceled after its first season, but the theme song, "Where Everybody Knows Your Name," was very popular. To satisfy viewer demand, the theme was made into a full song and released as a single.
The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
