Charted: 14

Songfacts®:

  • Written by Jamiroquai leader Jason Kay and keyboardist Toby Smith, this song is a variation on the "blinded by love" theme. Kay sings about a girl who mistreats him and lies to him, but his perception of her is distorted because he loves her, which causes him to put up with her.
  • Supermodel Heidi Klum stars in the video with Kay. >>
