Jessie explained to The Sun how she had to fight to include this number on Who You Are. Said the English singer: "What I love about C.O.L. is that not everybody believed in it. It was a song I had to fight for and I'm glad I did. I put it on YouTube and the amazing reaction from my fans helped my argument! So thank you heartbeats. We won! Muhaha!"
The Flaming Lips' "Do You Realize??" was named in March 2009 the official Rock Song of Oklahoma. Four years later, Oklahoma's governor Mary Fallin pulled the tune as the state's official rock song in a move her office said had more to do with priorities than musical taste.
