Songfacts®:

  • This is the most political song on Wildheart. "I loved making the song 'Deal,' because I wanted to make a track people could dance to, but not really paying attention to the lyrics, and that song is really about the relationship between politicians, lobbyists and multimillion dollar corporations," Miguel told Shortlist magazine. "It's a political song, but it's a party song."
