Marling sings of a crumbling relationship with a father figure lover accompanied just by her acoustic guitar. The lyric of this sparse waltz is laden with guilt and recrimination. "You were my speaker/My innocence keeper."
The song is written in the form of a communication by Marling to her former beau. She told The Independent: "Someone told me a good writing tip is to write conversations with people you can't have conversations with, that it's quite useful for developing characters. I did that a lot while I was writing this album. There's of a lot of one-sided conversations in it."
"Come Dancing" by The Kinks was inspired by the older sister of Ray Davies, who would make guys take her out dancing and spend their money on her, only to send them home frustrated with just a peck on the cheek.
The third verse of "Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm" by Crash Test Dummies ("they shook and lurched all over the church floor...") was inspired by girl whose parents would speak in tongues at their Pentecostal service.
"Crank That (Soulja Boy)" was the most successful digital track of 2007 in the US with 2,909,000 downloads. On January 6, 2008 it became the first song ever to sell 3 million digital copies in the States.
