Songfacts®:

  • This hip-hop track features Jon Clark, who was a guitarist on Michael Jackson's Bad tour, along with Jennifer Batten. Jennifer explains in her track by track commentary that the song uses, "a comedic spoken word character that he often used in 1988 during the tour I was on with him. He tells a story of the frustrations of buying electronics in the modern age."

    She adds: "For the second solo I trigger an organ sound with the guitar synth which came out very jazz flavoured just due to the sound I used. The melody is very bendy and snakey." >>
