Songfacts®:

  • Vocalist and guitarist Tom Fletcher (from the Mail On Sunday July 20, 2008): "There was talk of us doing some sort of musical and I thought if we were going to play a band in a film again (we played ourselves in the Lindsay Lohan film Just My Luck, a couple of years ago) then we should be called 'The Motions.' If that ever happens, this is the track we would play."
