  • Lyrics
  • Duffy wrote this Motown sounding stomper in the summer of 2008. It was included as one of the new songs on the Deluxe edition of the Welsh singer's Rockferry album.
  • After discussing with the Western Mail how she has had to learn to be strong and stand up for herself since becoming famous, Duffy told the interviewer that in this song, "You might see a little bit of the woman that won't take any s--t."
  • Sophie Muller directed the Chicago-ish music video for this song. She had previously helmed Duffy's promo for "Stepping Stone."
