This ballad is the second single by English singer Cheryl Cole, from her second studio album, Messy Little Raindrops. The song was described by X Factor magazine as: "a massive, strong-laden, Christmassy tear-jerker about wreckage, drowning and natural disaster love."
The UK singles market was flooded with songs of this title in 2010. Other releases of the same name include hits by Katie Melua and Take That.
Sophie Muller, who directed Cole's first solo video ("Promise This"), shot the clip on England's south coast, where the lonely singer is shown wandering the seaside.
Kacey Musgraves originally offered "Follow Your Arrow" to her friend Katy Perry. However, Perry thought Musgraves should record the song herself as it seemed, "like something that you would totally say."
"Crank That (Soulja Boy)" was the most successful digital track of 2007 in the US with 2,909,000 downloads. On January 6, 2008 it became the first song ever to sell 3 million digital copies in the States.
