Exile in Guyville
was a song-by-song reply by Phair to the Rolling Stones' 1972 album, Exile on Main St.
and this song corresponds to "Let It Loose
." Phair explained to Rolling Stone
: "He's saying let it loose, stop being an uptight girl from the suburbs and I'm like, really, OK, here you go, here's what's in there! I had part of that song beforehand and I developed it. I had the roundabout thing and I wrote the rap at school thinking about this boy with these beautiful lips."
