This upbeat anthem was influenced by George Ezra's girlfriend and his emotions during the early stages of their relationship.
I know you heard it from those other boys But this time it's real It's something that I feel and I know you heard it from those other boys But this time it's real
"Instead of a particular story it's more of a feeling that takes over when you've fallen in love which is just quite heady, isn't it," Ezra told the Press Association.
George Ezra rediscovered "Paradise" on his Dictaphone eight months after he recorded it. He recalled to The Sun: "That song started life before the end of the first record. We were on tour in California and someone got a cold on the bus. If one of you gets a cold, we all do. I remember being in my bed feeling sorry for myself and I just started singing and had that melody. Then I forgot about it for a while."
The song captures the feeling of falling in love during the early days of an relationship. The female voice in the background is that of Florence "Florrie" Arnold, who also plays drums on the track. According to The Mail On Sunday's Charlotte Griffths, Ezra and Florrie were dating when they recorded the tune and the lyrics were written with her in mind.
Arizona DJ Guy Zapoleon played UB40's "Red Red Wine" four years after it was released as part of a feature on songs that should have been hits. Listeners started requesting the tune and within weeks it was topping the Hot 100.
Kid Rock's "All Summer Long" is a mashup of "Werewolves Of London" and "Sweet Home Alabama." The album it came from was released in October, 2007, but they held off until summer, 2008 for a more seasonable release.
