PWT's singer and main songwriter Tom Higgenson discussed this song with Alternative Press magazine: "I am a very nostalgic guy, and I tend to romanticize my memories a lot. Needless to say, past lovers are always popping in and out of my head. I can't help but think about them and wonder where they are, who they're dating and what they're doing in life. It's a bittersweet feeling because it's nice to remember these people, but it's sad to think you may never see them again. So for a while, I let them dance in my head and enjoy the memory."
"White "Christmas" was so popular that Bing had to re-record the song five years after the original 1942 recording because the original masters had been worn out from all the pressings. This is the version that became a holiday tradition.
"It's the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)" was inspired by a dream where Michael Stipe conjured up images of people with the initials L.B.: Lester Bangs, Leonid Breshnev, Lenny Bruce and Leonard Bernstein.
