Yazoo's 1982 synth pop single "Only You
" served as an inspiration for the track: Cera explained:
"There was this one part in the movie where they had 'Only You' by Yaz [soundtracking it]. They didn't know if they were going to be able to clear [the song rights] so I said, 'Why don't you let me try and write an original pop song that people might not know whether it's an original song for the movie or just a song they'd never heard before?'."
"I basically tried to go after that sound [of 'Only You']," he continued. "That song was my compass and then it kind of found its own way. They ended up clearing the rights, but I like that this song was born because of that."
