This jazz-frosted song finds Bush singing about falling for a snowman who melts away after a night of passion. She wakes up the next morning with wet sheets and a pile of twigs. The singer admitted to The Washington Post that she can't explain where such songs come from. Said Bush: "By that point I had really homed in on writing about snow.

The Naughty by Nature hit "O.P.P." doesn't have any curse words, but many oversensitive radio stations played a "clean" version with the word "kitten" edited out, surely the first time that word was censured.
"Cruise" climbed from 6-5 on the Hot 100 in its 34th week. In doing so it set a record for the slowest ascent to the Top 5 in the chart's history, which was beaten by Imagine Dragon's "Radioactive" 42-week clamber to #4 three weeks later.
