This brassy New Orleans stopper is inspired by Edward Hopper, the American painter of lonesome nightlife scenes. "It was a vehicle to write this kind of existential art of nonsense really," laughed Paul Weller to Q magazine. "To be happy to be part of just the fabric of life and time: 'I'm sat in the corner, I've merged with the wall,' and it's alright and I'm quite happy with that. It started off as just a poem."
"Kickstart My Heart" is about all the ways Motley Crue gets their blood flowing without drugs. It was inspired by their bass player Nikki Sixx, who claimed he had to be revived with a shot of adrenaline to the heart after an overdose.
