Songfacts®:

  • Paul Weller: "This one started off with Simon (Dine, producer). He had an idea for a groove and we started building it from there. At first it seems like it's a straightforward R&B tune, and you expect it to follow the standard meter. But I decided to experiment so there's an atonal bit in the verse which was inspired by some Arabic poetry. It's got a real kick to it."
