Several tracks on I'm Not Bossy, I'm The Boss, such as this blues-rocker, were inspired by some of O'Connor's American blues heroes including Freddie King, Elmore James and Buddy Guy. 'For two-and-a-half years, I've been obsessed with nothing but blues," she told USA Today magazine in an interview just before the release of the album. "What I love is the Chicago blues, which is the happy, funky blues, as I would call it. I fell so in love with the Chicago blues, and I watched it all on YouTube, the performances and all that. Then I would go and buy the albums."
