This was written by KT Tunstall, who was the only female songwriter to contribute to The Performance
, the concept album devised for and about the Diva by producer David Arnold. It started life as a folk song called "Nice Boys," and underwent the biggest transformation of all the songs of the project, becoming more of a cabaret number. Shirley Bassey herself said she liked the song but it was one that nearly didn't get done: "it was not me at all, and I had to make it me." She altered the lyrics to give it a slightly sensuous feel.
