Songfacts®:

  • This was one of four songs featured on The Sisters EP, released in May 1994 as the final single release off of the album His 'N' Hers, and it featured the lead single "Babies" and three songs that missed the cut off the original album: the present song, "Seconds" and title track "His 'n' Hers." Its position of #19 in the UK Singles Chart was at the time the band's highest charting, before it was blown out of the water by the various singles off follow-up album Different Class.
  • "Your Sister's Clothes" is actually a sequel to "Babies," with the younger sister from the first song (whom the narrator would spy on whilst she had sex and went out with her elder sister) gaining revenge for the events of that song four years later by stealing/wearing her sister's clothes (hence the title).
