This is the opening track on Johnny Marr's Playland album. "When I wrote the first song, 'Back In The Box', I knew it would be the opener," Marr told NME, because it's just a celebration of euphoria and ecstasy."
Marr described this to Q magazine as, "a good old-fashioned love song."
Johnny Marr expanded on the song's meaning to DIY magazine: "I'm singing about transcendence and euphoria and ecstatic states, either hearing a record you like, waking up on a sunny morning, being in love," he said. "Or schizophrenia, drugs, all these things that can make you have a euphoric experience."

"Kickstart My Heart" is about all the ways Motley Crue gets their blood flowing without drugs. It was inspired by their bass player Nikki Sixx, who claimed he had to be revived with a shot of adrenaline to the heart after an overdose.
Elvis Presley's "A Little Less Conversation" was just a minor hit when it was released in 1968, but a 2002 remix made the song a global smash, taking it to #1 in a number of countries, including Australia and the UK.
