  • This is one of three tracks on Come to Life where Coldplay's Chris Martin has a songwriting credit. As a long-time Coldplay fan who attended many of the band's early London shows, Imbruglia was thrilled to work with Martin. She told The Daily Mirror Sept 25, 2009: "It's one thing being a fan of someone, quite another to find yourself in a studio songwriting session with them. It was quite intimidating but wonderful too. He's got a thousand ideas pouring through him all the time and it's a buzz to be around that sort of energy.
    He helped me rewrite one of the songs which has become the first single ("Want"), and gave me a song called 'Fun' which is one of the most beautiful I've ever heard. He told me it was unfinished, but then he heard my album and finished it for me. It's one of the best things he's written."
