James Bond composer David Arnold supplied the string arrangement on this track. Kaiser Chief bassist Simon Rix explained to Drowned In Sound: "He's become a friend of ours since we did the Electric Proms with him last year. After that he said if we ever needed anything, just to ask. When we were making the album he came to the studio next door to work on the Bond theme with Mark Ronson and Amy Winehouse. We'd done a short session with Mark and Eliot (James) in February and done three songs: 'Never Miss a Beat
,' 'You Want History' and 'Like It Too Much.' We were really happy with the first two but we knew 'Like It Too Much' needed something extra. He recorded a demo using synthesized strings over the top of the track and sent it to us. They were brilliant but ridiculous. It sounded like 'Yellow Submarine
' Beatles (the George Martin half) all singing, all dancing. Massive, but too much. We asked him to record what he'd done but with just a string quartet. When it was finished and mixed it was great and anthemic. All was well in Pepperland!"
