This was the fourth single and title track from English alternative Rock band Elbow's debut album. It was their first ever UK Top 20 hit.
Singer Guy Garvey told Drowned in Sound about this song: "We only added this after the album was finished, bizarrely. Quite often when you're in love you find yourself testing your partner in the early stages of a relationship; telling them all the naff things about you, the dark stuff about you - almost testing how far their love goes (at least I used to do so). It was wonderful working with (producer) Ben Hillier, and this track, I think, is sonically one of the most interesting we did with him."
