Irish singer-songwriter Brian McFadden created a furore when this song initially went online due to such lyrics as, "can't wait to get you home so I can do some damage, can't wait to get you home and take advantage." To make matters worse, not only was McFadden appearing to be advocating date rape, but he is a married man, hitched to Australian singer-songwriter Delta Goodrem. However McFadden told The Daily Mirror, he wasn't talking about women in general, just his wife. Said the former Westlife singer: "I am shocked at these ridiculous accusations about my new song. For the record I wrote the song about how I love it when Delta has a drink - which is very rarely - and she's dancing."
McFadden later elaborated on the tune via Twitter: "My new song is a tongue-in-cheek song about how I find it cute when my girl gets drunk. I am not promoting date-rape. What's the next thing I am going to be labeled as from things I say? Super intelligent reaction to my song. Wish I was as clever as them. And yes it is dumb lyrics and a dumb beat, that was the point! When did I ever claim to be John Lennon?"

The Four Tops' "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)" was written by the Motown team of Lamont Dozier, Brian Holland and Eddie Holland. The phrase "Sugar pie, honey bunch" was something Dozier's grandfather used to say when he was a kid.
Dido helped shut down a Neo-Nazi Web site after learning it was using "White Flag" to promote its hateful messages. Owners of the site had misinterpreted the track as racist and thought they represented their white supremacy views.
