Songfacts®:

  • Duffy in The Sun February 29, 2008: "Bernard (Butler) and I would never sit around and talk much in the studio. We'd go in, say hi, and sit down straight away at the piano. We did Serious one afternoon and I immediately loved it. It made me feel really good. It was just about having fun." Duffy then added that it was "serious fun."
