  • Zooey Deschanel, who is the "She" in She & Him, told The Sun April 2, 2010 about this song: "I kept thinking about the Orpheus myth and how I could use it as a parallel for the story in this song. I was playing around with the chord progression and the first line popped in my head. I had just bought an old baby grand piano at a thrift store for my living room and I recorded the demo for this song on that piano. It was a nice way to christen the instrument."
