This song about personal resilience was written by frontman Tom Clarke after he'd been in a fight with a Coventry bouncer. Clarke explained to The Sun April 17, 2009: "He didn't like the jacket I was wearing. It was a brand new Harrington. I was totally sober. I was left with bruised ribs but after dealing with a d---head bouncer I then had to deal with a d---head copper too. He attended yet never helped me a bit. So I went home absolutely furious and wrote that song to vent my anger."
"What's Up" by 4 Non Blondes has endured as one of the most popular songs of the '90s, but it wasn't a huge hit at the time and the band split after one album. Frontwoman Linda Perry went on to write hits for Pink and Christina Aguilera.
The Four Tops' "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)" was written by the Motown team of Lamont Dozier, Brian Holland and Eddie Holland. The phrase "Sugar pie, honey bunch" was something Dozier's grandfather used to say when he was a kid.
