This song was inspired by Kate Nash's 27th birthday, which the English singer-songwriter celebrated in Los Angeles. She said: "It was a wild night with special people and it was nice to be reminded of the close friendships I have out here in a new city. It also reminded me how much I have changed over the past two years and how much has happened! It's exciting to be 27! It feels like a very womanly age, I feel more secure in myself as I get older and I like this number a lot."
"I wrote letters to my sisters and the girlfriends back home that I couldn't spend the day with which in turn inspired a song," Nash added.
Nash not only wrote and recorded "She Rules" herself, but also edited its video on iMovie. "I shot some stuff on my iPhone, then I sent my friends the beats without the rest of the song and got them to film themselves on the 8mm app just dancing, and then I edited it together on iMovie and released it a few weeks ago," she explained to Billboard magazine. "It's fun and about girl love."
Phil Oakey recorded his vocals for "Don't You Want Me" in the studio bathroom. The recording was disrupted by guitarist Jo Callis reaching through an open window from outside to repeatedly flush one of the toilets.
Ronnie Van Zant wrote the Lynyrd Skynyrd classic "Gimme Three Steps" after making the mistake of dancing with a girl whose boyfriend was in the bar and probably had a gun. He asked for a 3-step head start.
