The title track of Say Anything's Hebrews album, this song features Brian Sella, who is the frontman of the New Jersey rock band The Front Bottoms.
The album title and many of its lyrics reference Say Anything frontman Max Bemis' Jewish upbringing. The twelve autobiographical tracks were written in the order they appear on the album, and are evenly split between the time before the birth of Bemis' daughter Lucy on February 11, 2013 and afterwards.
"It's a grandiose-sounding record about the small things that kind of eat away at you," he explained to Billboard magazine. "I don't think I would've been forced to confront the things I confront on the record if it wasn't for the impending birth of my daughter. If you listen to the lyrics, everything that comes before her birth is worrying about being a bad father or not being ready to be a father, and everything after her birth is sort of redemptive. That's the narrative arc of the record -- not that I've ever needed a reason to confront my demons otherwise, but that was the catalyst."
Pete Townshend never had a #1 UK hit with The Who or as a solo artist, but he did produce and play on a song that hit the top spot there: "Something In The Air" by Thunderclap Newman, a group he assembled.
