This features Manda, an aspiring French singer. Her dream was to sing with Morcheeba and she contacted the band about collaborating via MySpace. Manda also features on "Flowers" and "Au Dela" on the same album. DJ Paul Godfrey on the band's website said: "Ross and I wrote this really quickly. It's about succeeding in every way and still feeling like there is something missing. When Manda put her voice to it, it sounded really bittersweet."
Ronnie Van Zant wrote the Lynyrd Skynyrd classic "Gimme Three Steps" after making the mistake of dancing with a girl whose boyfriend was in the bar and probably had a gun. He asked for a 3-step head start.
It really was so easy for Linda Ronstadt to score a hit with her Buddy Holly cover of "It's So Easy." She would sometimes change the lyric to: "It's so easy to have a hit, all you have to do is recycle it."
