Bassist Brandon Campbell told Billboard magazine about this holiday song: "It's very Neon Trees," he said, "but it sounds like we've been listening to a lot of Spoon and old Phil Spector or something."
The song's lyrics, about longing to be with loved ones during Christmas, were inspired by US troops serving overseas. "When you're in a band, you go out on tour and think, 'Oh, I've been gone for three weeks, boo-hoo,'" Campbell explained, "and then there's people like that who are gone for so long. I could just imagine that if they could have anything, especially at that time of the year, it would be those people they love."
His keyboard work helped define the Muscle Shoals sound and make him an integral part of many Neil Young recordings. Spooner is also an accomplished songwriter, whose hits include "I'm Your Puppet" and "Cry Like A Baby."
