Frontman Charlie Fink's lyrics for Last Night on Earth were heavily influenced by poetry. Fink explained in a press release how this song was influenced by Frank O'Hara's poem Having a Coke With You, which he read for the first time in 2010: "I wanted ['Just Before We Met '] to have a feel of that, or a tempo. Just the notion of it. Having a Coke With You is I think a very romantic poem, and that's the only outwardly romantic song on the album, and so I wanted it to have the same approach."
Originally a chart-topper for Steve Lawrence in 1962 chart-topper, "Go Away Little Girl," became the first song of the rock era to be taken to #1 by two different artists when Donny Osmond's cover version also reached the summit in 1971.
"Crank That (Soulja Boy)" was the most successful digital track of 2007 in the US with 2,909,000 downloads. On January 6, 2008 it became the first song ever to sell 3 million digital copies in the States.
