Day Tripping

Songfacts®:

  • This ballad was only included on the album thanks to Spitari's friend, the comedian Peter Kay. She explained to the Daily Record May 10, 2008 that she was originally planning on rejecting this from the album: "I was still making my mind up about the track listing when I played it to Peter. Then Peter said, 'That's not going on? Are ye deaf?'"
