Pet Shop Boys Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe wrote this song with the British production team of Adam F and Dan Fresh. On their website
, Tennant explained: "We had this idea of a kind of record to make, which was to get a hip hop producer but then to use electro-clash sounds with them. It's a love song. It's about how, when you're in love with someone, they have a kind of magic and they seem to transform everything: 'Thunder is silent before you... roses bloom more to adore you.'"
