Vocalist Jason Butler told Kerrang! magazine about the inspiration for this song: "Slightly embarrassingly, I wrote it one night after having shared some rather intimate moments with this girl," he said laughing. "I woke up, and there was a bunch of things I wanted to say to explain what I was thinking was going to happen between her and I following that intimacy... But I was a pussy and I was too scared to wake her up. I just wanted to really explain to her what was going on in my head."
Butler explained the lyric about God to Kerrang! "The idea was me considering women to be somewhat of a deity," he said. "And while I do find women to be fantastic and beautiful and givers of life, I was looking at it more in the romantic sense, taking over everything in my life and putting these strange, rose-coloured blinders on, as opposed to lenses."
So why did Butler chose to spell 'Cult' with a 'V'? "To reference older spellings," he explained "There are a lot of eras where they would just use the 'V' as a 'U.' It just sort of represents an archaic idea."
Arizona DJ Guy Zapoleon played UB40's "Red Red Wine" four years after it was released as part of a feature on songs that should have been hits. Listeners started requesting the tune and within weeks it was topping the Hot 100.
When "Nothin' On You" reached #1 on the Hot 100, B.o.B became the first American act whose name is a palindrome to top the chart. The other two who did so prior to the Atlanta rapper were both Scandinavian groups - ABBA and A-Ha.
