This was the third track to be unveiled from Little Boots, aka Victoria Hesketh's, sophomore album. Asked by NME what motivated the song she replied: "It was inspired by the idea of wanting to go out with your friends but not enjoying the music being played, so sneaking your own headphones into a club so you can dance to the music you want to, kind of the ultimate silent disco soundtrack!"
The song's music video sees people in a booth wearing headphones. Hesketh explained its concept to NME: "The inspiration for the video was partly from the Wim Wenders film Paris Texas and the idea of a peep show revolving around headphones and listening to music as opposed to talking.The idea is that everyday characters enter a booth and on listening to the song their extrovert selves appear in the reflection, so the song is a way of releasing their inner selves and setting the crazier side of them free."
Hesketh added: "We wanted to create an energetic party atmosphere to fit the song whilst avoiding the clichés of a lot of current club themed videos."
There was a rumor in the Soviet Union that The Beatles had secretly visited the U.S.S.R. and given a private concert for the children of top Communist party members. They believed the song "Back In The U.S.S.R." was written because of the concert. Actually, some fans still believe so.
Who writes a song about a name they found in a phone book? That's just one of the everyday things these guys find to sing about. Anything in their field of vision or general scope of knowledge is fair game. If you cross paths with them, so are you.
