  • Elbow vocalist Guy Garvey is the only member of the band not to become a father. "Some of the songs (on Take Off and Landing of Everything), weirdly, have parental advice in them," he stated to Q magazine. In this track, Garvey addresses "a bright young girl in a small town, telling her to get the f--k out of there and go and follow her heart."
