Songfacts®:

  • Little Boots wrote this with American electronic musician Com Truise: "It's bonkers," she told The Independent. "There's out-of-tune glitchy synths, it sounds like a hyperactive Eighties Eddie Murphy cops-film soundtrack. And then I decided to sing about business over the top. Something about how it all works together blows my mind."
  • The song is the title track of Little Boots' Business Pleasure EP. "My work is my pleasure, it's my everything," she said. "The whole theme of the album and the EP is creativity and survival; when you do what you love as your job it's reconciling those two things and not letting the business side compromise the pleasure side. Everything I do is that."
