Bareilles uses Adam and Eve as an allegory as she sings of her life changing move from her home state of California to New York. "I found myself a little stuck in the disillusionment in Los Angeles," she explained to VH1, "and this is about letting go of that and moving into a different space."
"Pretty In Pink" by Psychedelic Furs was released in 1981. Five years later, it inspired a movie of the same name starring Molly Ringwald, Andrew McCarthy and Jon Cryer. The song was remixed for the re-release to have more Pop appeal.
