Elton John sang with Brandi on her 2009 song "Caroline
." She told us that Elton was a big influence on the sound of this track. "I had never written in that vein before, although I am an enthusiast of blues and soul-rock," she explained. "I'm such a huge Elton John fan. But I have a piano in my living room and I was running out of the house one day. I went to go hit an E chord and my thumb slipped, and I hit this kind of bluesier sounding chord. And I couldn't get it out of my head. I got in my car, and I had a lot of stuff going on mentally. I wrote this song around that chord. When I got home, I was able to piece it together."
