Fickle Friends made numerous attempts to get this tune right before enlisting the help of producer Mike Spencer. Singer Natassja Shiner recalled to HMV.com
"I think we must have 50 versions of that song and we kept trying new things. We kept changing it, trying to get it right for the label, which, in retrospect you should never ever do, it was such a faff. We ended up doing that with Mike Spencer and we got it right, but the label were worried and they actually ended up sending it to other writers to try and write a new chorus, which is so mental. We told them, 'It's just a difficult song to get right, don't give to other people, they aren't going to get it' and they didn't. That whole writing process took about a year."
