This was the last song Nathanson penned for his seventh studio album, Modern Love. He told American Songwriter: "I had the title kicking around for a long time. The rest of the song came quickly, right as we were finishing up the album. That never happens. The whole idea behind the song is that when you finally embrace real love, nothing else matters as much. Once you commit to someone other than yourself, you no longer have room to hold any of the other s--t you used to think was so important."
Originally a chart-topper for Steve Lawrence in 1962 chart-topper, "Go Away Little Girl," became the first song of the rock era to be taken to #1 by two different artists when Donny Osmond's cover version also reached the summit in 1971.
"White "Christmas" was so popular that Bing had to re-record the song five years after the original 1942 recording because the original masters had been worn out from all the pressings. This is the version that became a holiday tradition.
