Johnny Marr sings here about a Lottery winner who ditches his wife for an ECG machine. He told The Sun: "I know, it's mad isn't it? I was thinking about how technology rules our lives. 'Have you got the new iPhone 5? Which laptop must I get?' And I was thinking, 'What's the ultimate technology you'd buy if you did win millions?' So I thought of a guy who gets rid of his wife for sexual kicks with the heart-rate machine."
Marr told NME: "As a musician, it's hard to avoid technology. I don't like that gadgets can be the boss of me for even one second, but they often drag me away for hours."
George Harrison's 1971 song "Bangla Desh" was the first major charity single. It was part of a concert held to bring relief to the people of Bangladesh, who were fighting for independence and suffering from a famine.
