  • This song features the actress Gwyneth Paltrow on backing vocals. Crow explained why she hooked up with the Hollywood star to The Mail On Sunday June 23, 2008: "When she was going out with (music executive) Guy Oseary he couldn't think of what to give her, because it was the same year she'd won the Oscar, and how does someone top that? He called me and said she'd once told him the thing she'd most love to do was sing with me. I thought it would be cute. Guy gave her a voucher on the day with my number on it. She called me, we went to the studio and we recorded 'It's Only Love' with her on backing vocals. Gwyneth has a great voice, and since that moment she's been a great friend of mine."
  • This was originally written by Sheryl Crow for Stevie Nicks, who recorded it on her 2001 album, Trouble in Shangri-la.
