Songfacts®:

  • The album's producer Stan Kybert spearheaded this dreamy house track, which is quite different from anything else on A Kind Revolution. Weller explained to HMV.com: "That was one of those things that came from Stan, I think he'd done a rough backing track and we just improvised on that and built the song as we went along."
  • Guest vocalist Boy George brings a soulful sheen to the tune. Weller explained that he "thought his voice would really work on that track," so he called him up "and said 'do you want to be on the record?'"
