Snow Patrol vocalist Gary Lightbody explained this song to the Irish public broadcaster RTE: "This was written in Galway. It's another love song but it concerns two very different feelings, which are indicated by the tightness of the verse and the openness of the chorus. The lyrics in the verse seem to be asking, demanding, the music to open up and burst/explode."
"The Night Chicago Died" was written and recorded by the British group Paper Lace. They talk about Al Capone in the song, but got a lot of details wrong - understandable since they wrote it based on gangster movies.
The Naughty by Nature hit "O.P.P." doesn't have any curse words, but many oversensitive radio stations played a "clean" version with the word "kitten" edited out, surely the first time that word was censured.
