  • This was the first ever song penned by Gabrielle. She told The Independent in November 2013 about the first time she performed the tune: "I started singing in the school canteen I was 11 and I'd written my first song, called 'Teenage Love,' so I got up on the canteen table and started singing it," she recalled. "I remember being amazed that the dinner-monitoring ladies didn't kick me off. Everyone stopped and listened. I thought, this is so cool. My voice wasn't huge back then, it was just different."
