Carly Rae Jepsen wrote this sultry ballad with Dev Hynes (who has written for artists such as Florence + the Machine, Diana Vickers and The Chemical Brothers) and producer Ariel Rechtshaid, who has worked with the likes of Solange, Haim and Sky Ferreira. Jepsen called it on Twitter, "My heart song of the album."
Jepsen premiered the song during her appearance on the April 4, 2015 episode of Saturday Night Live. She was joined by Ariel Rechstaid on bass and Dev Hynes on guitar.
Bruce Springsteen wrote "Blinded By The Light," which was a #1 hit for Manfred Mann's Earth Band. The "Madman Drummers" line is a reference to Springsteen's first E-Street drummer, Vinnie "Mad dog" Lopez.
