Sexsmith told the story of this song to The Guardian: "My publishers are always sending me on trips to write with other people, so this one time they sent me to Nashville. You don't want to turn up empty handed, so in advance I wrote down a load of titles in advance. But when I played this guy 'Me, Myself and Wine' he thought I was just making fun of country music, so in the end I just used the song for myself. It's pretty simple - it's just about listening to music with a good glass of wine."
This old-school country tune about settling in with a good album and a good wine acts as a love letter to the record. "My fans, they're like me. They like albums and they read the liner notes," Sexsmith explained to Spinner. "You hear people say no one cares about albums, but people are buying them. When I think of my favorite albums, it's such a personal thing. You don't want to be talking over it; you want to sit down a take it in. It's like a book or a movie."
"(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding" was written by Nick Lowe in 1974. The original version with his group Brinsley Schwarz was kind of somber, but Elvis Costello made it a classic with his 1978 uptempo take.
