This list of everyday hates flips into a tender love missive. It is the most autobiographical song on the album and is the closest to a love song about Nash's beau, The Cribs singer Ryan Jarman. Nash told the NME January 16, 2010 that it "is my one real honest song. It's like… 'I hate seagulls, I hate groupies and I hate being sick.' Sometimes there are things in your life where you're like, 'F---ing hell, I hate all this bulls--t.' Then there's someone who you love, whether that's your friend, sister, cousin or partner… that's the reason you're alright. Because you love someone and someone loves you back."
Nash told The NME April 24, 2010: "It's a nice, sweet love song and I just thought it'd be nice to end on something lovely! It's a love song so it's really pure and I didn't want to make it over-complicated. It's actually recorded on an electric guitar, but it's really stripped."
Robin Thicke and his mom, Gloria Loring are the first the first ever mother-and-son to have both tallied top 10 singles on the Hot 100 as solo artists or duos. Loring reached #2 with Carl Anderson in 1986 with "Friends and Lovers" and Thicke topped the chart in 2013 with "Blurred Lines."
"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.
