  • Lyrics
  • Towards the end of the track, Spektor can be heard barking like a dolphin. She told The Sunday Times: "It came really readily. It's almost like my body had been waiting to do that its whole life - my inner dolphin."
  • Jeff Lynne produced this song, along with "Genius Next Door" "Blue Lips" and "Wallet" on Far. Lynne's CV includes work with Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison and, E.L.O. However when Spektor approached Lynne, she admitted to Rolling Stone that she wasn't familiar with his résumé. She said: "I loved Tom Petty's last record. Everyone was like, 'He's done some other things.'"
