"This is a song about a pretty Irish girl," explains Gin Blossom's guitarist Jesse Valenzuela
, who wrote the song with lead singer Robin Wilson. "I think the boy is crazy about the girl in the song, and they just want to hook up, don't they?" When asked if Christine is anybody he knows, Jesse laughs, "I've had too many Christines." This song is sort of a conglomeration of those girls, and even his wife is Irish, he says. "I tend to like Irish girls."
