Lysandre was written around Girls' first tour, in 2009. Owens told NME: "It's specifically about the excitement I was feeling getting ready for it." He added that on this song he's "talking about what was going to happen once we got to New York, what I was anticipating. The music, we were going to play. I wanted to speak plainly about each day, from before leaving to getting home."
Lily Allen wrote "Something's Not Right" for the soundtrack of the Peter Pan prequel, Pan. The song was inspired by the heartache that Allen experienced after suffering a miscarriage when she was six months pregnant with her first child by husband Sam Cooper in 2010.
"(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding" was written by Nick Lowe in 1974. The original version with his group Brinsley Schwarz was kind of somber, but Elvis Costello made it a classic with his 1978 uptempo take.
