A Hot Minute

Album: No Fairy Tale (2013)
  • songfacts ®
  • This emotionally-charged "in love and stalking" song is one of two collaborations on No Fairy Tale with Tegan & Sara. It was one of two No Fairy Tale tracks written solely by the Canadian power-pop twins, the first time ever songs fully penned by an outside writer had appeared on one of Lisa Loeb's solo recordings. It also features Tegan on harmony.

    "To be honest," said Tegan, "I had no idea that Lisa would ever consider recording songs that anyone else had written. I was overjoyed, over the moon, ecstatic and crazed when I heard she was going to cut a few songs of mine. I grew up a huge fan and remain a huge fan of everything. After meeting her I was an even bigger fan. She is so smart and confident. I was just so impressed by her work ethic, her presence and her ability as a writer and singer. I really related to a lot of her stories. It's not a stretch that something that happened to me could have happened to her. For me, it's nice after 15 years, to feel a renewed joy and sense of adventure when it comes to writing."
