This features Joss Stone on vocals. Randy Jackson, who is a judge on American Idol, explained to Reality Rocks why he chose the British singer for this track: "Well, basically I have a lot of friends because I've been in the business a long time and worked with a lot of people. I thought as I wrote songs along the way, who would sound best on each song? The Joss Stone song came about because it was a very different thing for her, almost more of a hip-hop thing for her."
Originally a chart-topper for Steve Lawrence in 1962 chart-topper, "Go Away Little Girl," became the first song of the rock era to be taken to #1 by two different artists when Donny Osmond's cover version also reached the summit in 1971.
"Abracadabra" was inspired by Diana Ross and The Supremes. Steve Miller first met the girl group when they performed together on NBC's Hullabaloo in 1966, and he wrote the lyrics after spotting Diana Ross skiing in the mountains years later.
