This is the title track of Chris Young's fourth studio album. The singer co-wrote six of the record's 11 songs, including this cut. "There's a lot of fun on this album and that's why I wanted to call the album A.M.," Young said. "Like the song says, 'The whole world's asleep but we're wide awake in the A.M."
Pete Townshend never had a #1 UK hit with The Who or as a solo artist, but he did produce and play on a song that hit the top spot there: "Something In The Air" by Thunderclap Newman, a group he assembled.
The third verse of "Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm" by Crash Test Dummies ("they shook and lurched all over the church floor...") was inspired by girl whose parents would speak in tongues at their Pentecostal service.
