This song finds Kesha opening up about her mistakes and flaws before she pledges in the chorus, "Maybe it's about time to let love back in the light. Maybe it's about the perfect place. Let go and forget about the hate."
Speaking with MTV News, Kesha explained the track is, "a song that talks about how imperfections are what make life beautiful. Rather than try to cause divisions between people because of our differences and imperfections why don't we all let a little more love into the light. It's a subject that many people have written about, but I don't think it can be said enough."
Lyrically, this is one of several tracks on Warrior that reveal the vulnerable side of Kesha. She told Reuters: "I just wanted to make sure my entire personality was presented more accurately. I feel like people really got to know the super-wild side of me but then sometimes a more vulnerable side. I didn't really feel comfortable expressing it. So this time I kind of forced myself to express a little bit more vulnerability, less Auto-Tune, less vocal trickery. It's a little more raw."
Ronnie Dunn wrote "Boot Scootin' Boogie" before he teamed up with Kix Brooks to form Brooks & Dunn. It was originally recorded by the country group Asleep At The Wheel, but Brooks & Dunn did it themselves when it got its own line dance.
New Order took the title for "Blue Monday" from an illustration, which read "Goodbye Blue Monday," in the Kurt Vonnegut book Breakfast Of Champions. The image referred to the invention of the washing machine improving housewives' lives.
