Songfacts®:

  • This was written by Tom Fletcher of McFly. McFly guested on the song's B-side, a cover of "Build Me Up Buttercup." The song is about the narrator "crashing" (or interrupting) the wedding of an ex-girlfriend.
  • The Gordon Street mentioned in the song is a reference to the movie Wayne's World 2. According to James Bourne, "Wayne tries to stop a wedding, and asks Charlton Heston where Gordon Street is. When Wayne eventually crashes the wedding it's done in a parody of The Graduate, which we parodied in the video for our first single ('What I Go To School For')." >>
