Songfacts®:

  • This song sounds similar to Take That's 2006 UK chart-topper "Shine." Allen admitted to the Observer Music Magazine December 2008 that she was aware of this, "but I didn't know when we wrote it." She added: "Greg (Kurstin, producer) just played the chords and I sang and we were like, 'That's great, really hooky.' Then when we played it back to someone, they pointed it out that it was, essentially, 'Shine.'"
  • Allen asked Take That to sing on it, they turned down the offer but allowed her to use the tune as they liked the song.
