I'm All Over It

Album: The Pursuit (2009)
Charted: 55

Songfacts®:

  • This is the first single from English crossover jazz singer-songwriter Jamie Cullum's fourth studio album, The Pursuit.
  • Cullum discussed this song in publicity materials: "I wanted to write a short, snappy pop song in the style of '70s Elton John with a bit of Ben Folds thrown in. I'd split up with someone and met the love of my life so this is a break-up song about feeling heartbroken then having that moment where the switch flips and you realise you're fine. It's an example of me writing lyrics that appear to make sense but don't necessarily when you try and pick them apart. It's the snappiest, poppiest song I've ever done and it was written in 90 minutes."
  • The song features string arrangements by Grammy-winning English arranger Paul Buckmaster.
