This song is about the escapist joys of living on a park bench. The London Times August 5, 2009 asked Peyroux if she really meant the lyric about leaving the rat race, ditching the house and the car? The American singer-songwriter replied: "That's not about me as such. I wrote a bunch of short stories to look at what I might write about on the record. One of them was about a very cheerful man I remembered who was homeless. I think the point of the song is to challenge people to think about what makes you happy." Peyroux added: "I mean I don't have a big car, a big house - I've got a little apartment in Brooklyn - I'm not saying I've figured it out, I'm more just raising the issue. It would be silly to suggest homelessness is a prescription for happiness."
The video for Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" pays homage to the classic 1995 film Clueless with the rapper playing Cher and featured singer Charli XCX portraying Tai. It was filmed at some of the same locations used in the movie.
