This brutal but danceable track finds Stephen Grainger singing about "babies in biker jackets." He explained to The Independent: "That's literally because I saw a baby in a biker jacket. But there's a metaphor there as well. When you see people at brunch in biker jackets, you think there's something so profoundly uncool about it. I like brunch. I like biker jackets. But they shouldn't be together."
The song is accompanied by a rough and ready DIY video directed and edited by Grainger. He shot the clip on a mobile phone while messing about with Jesse F. Keeler in a London hotel room.
The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
