Tunstall spoke to MTV News about this track: "It's a song on the album that I really had a good attachment with. I think it's a signature tune off the album. I started writing it when I was 17 and it basically took me some years to get it to its current state. It's basically about teenage sex - when you meet that special someone, and there's that magical little space before you actually touch each other."
Country star Slim Whitman's version of the 1920s song "Rose Marie" spent 11 consecutive weeks at #1 in the UK in 1955, a record until 1991 when Bryan Adams’ "(Everything I Do) I Do It For You" spent 16 weeks at the top.
"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.
