  • On this song She & Him vocalist Zooey Deschanel references the MTV show Cribs and a "gold-plated ceiling." She told Pitchfork Media the story behind this song: "I wrote that song while I was playing guitar in the middle of the night in London. Master P was on MTV Cribs and he had a gold plated-ceiling, I was like, 'What?!' A lot of people are like, 'Oh, this song must be about some dude.' But it's more about myself than anything. It's about watching TV in the middle of the night. At that time, I was holed up in this apartment - I was a recluse [laughs], I'm not gonna lie."
