NW5 is an area in North London, including Kentish Town and Tufnell Park adjacent to Camden Town where Madness hail from.
This was written by Madness saxophone player Lee Thompson and pianist Mike Barson. The duo also wrote some of the band's other hits including "House of Fun" and "Embarrassment." Thompson spoke to the Camden Gazette about this track: "It's about a friend of mine from NW5 who I used to hang about with as far back as the mid-'60s, who unfortunately passed on. I went on to become a Pop star and he got into the dark side of life. I'm no angel, I got into alcohol a bit but he got into the hard stuff, some pretty heavy drugs. It's about friendship and how life can change you."
Lily Allen wrote "Something's Not Right" for the soundtrack of the Peter Pan prequel, Pan. The song was inspired by the heartache that Allen experienced after suffering a miscarriage when she was six months pregnant with her first child by husband Sam Cooper in 2010.
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.
