Songfacts®:

  • The first track on Pure Fiction, this was inspired by Eric Hutchinson's culinary efforts. He recalled: "I had almost finished my album Pure Fiction and was procrastinating from writing by making lasagna. I was feeling proud of the dish and snapped a pic and was about to put it on my website and I thought 'well let's just tell the world everything we've done.' That sounded like a song to me. I threw the lasagna in the oven and ran into my studio to start working. An hour later I had a finished song and a very burnt lasagna."
  • This was chosen as the opening theme song for the NBC sitcom Growing Up Fisher.
  • The song featured in the first commercial for Windows 10, "The Future Starts Now," which also features a voiceover from Ethan Hawke.
