This is the title track of Australian Alternative-Rock trio Sick Puppies' fourth album. Lead vocalist/guitarist Shimon Moore observed: "There are only a few things every single person in the world has in common. One is that we all need each other. To have a song that captures that is pretty special."
While most of the songs on Connect were written in 2012, this track contains the oldest riff in Shimon Moore's musical cache. However, it wasn't until the recording of the album that he found a suitable chorus to go with it. "It's fun; I wrote it while in high school learning how to play guitar, and I always had it in my back pocket," Moore recalled. "I've brought it up on every record, but wasn't right."
"Pink Cadillac" was a B-side for Bruce Springsteen in 1984, but after Aretha Franklin sang about pink Cadillacs on "Freeway Of Love" the following year, Natalie Cole covered the song and had a hit with it in 1988.
