This song is about how to put the pieces back together after a broken relationship. Amy Kirkpatrick was inspired by a college friend's love woes when she wrote the lyrics. She told us: "We were just talking about how sometimes when somebody leaves you or you end something with anybody in your life, it feels like more of you is in them or half of you is in them. It can take months and years to build yourself back up again and forget who you are, and just feel whole again."
The Data Romance duo thought it was important to capture an authentic sound for this song, so Ajay enlisted a friend to help him record real instruments at a home studio. He explained: "It was like a makeshift studio he had in his basement and his family had a piano upstairs. And so we'd run cables all the way up the stairs and I think opened the top. It's an old upright, but it's great for the piano. And we re-tracked the piano for that. We spent a week and did it all - we put a real harp on the album, real strings, real percussion, and real organ and piano, and just tried to do everything organic that we could."
David Bowie's "Space Oddity" tells the story of an astronaut who cuts off communication and floats into space. The BBC used it extensively in their coverage of the 1969 moon landing - an odd choice considering the lyrics.
"Won't Get Fooled Again" by The Who is about a revolution, but it doesn't have a happy ending, since in the end the new regime becomes just like the old one. Pete Townshend thought that whoever was in power was destined to become corrupt.
