Pizza And Pinball

Album: Into Colour (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • This upbeat tune finds Rumer imagining being a child in the 1970s. "That's a happy song! It's an interesting song," she told The Independent. "I don't have much playfulness, but that song reconnected me with that. It's about a 1970s childhood. I thought it was nice. A little fantasy scene. So, I found one!"
  • Rumer and her songwriter partner Rob Shirakbari wrote this with their friend Vincent Bernardi. The latter is a fun-loving Californian rocker whose main interests are pizza, pinball and The Replacements.
