Charted: 44

Songfacts®:

  • Sparro spoke to TheSun April 21, 2008 about this song: "I'm saying: 'When I was a little boy living in the last century, I thought about living in the future.' And then I thought: Fu--ing hell, this is the future. Things have changed so quickly. When my grandmother was born, there were two billion people and now it's six-and-a-half. We're using up our resources and we're growing and building and working. Everyone's stressed and I guess the world is just boiling, boiling, boiling out of control."
