For some time British dance-pop singer-songwriter Sophie Ellis-Bextor has had to put up with an annoying text stalker who sends messages to her phone mainly consisting of jokes and song lyrics. After getting one on her way to work one day Ellis-Bextor decided to pen a song about the text intruder with her songwriting colleagues Hannah Robinson and Liam Howe.
As to what the stalker might think of the song, Ellis-Bextor told Channel 4's The 5 O'Clock Show: "I never respond so they don't know that I'm receiving it. People say, 'But surely now you've written a song, they will know!' But they could be texting someone else. It hasn't been confirmed that it's me they're texting. They don't seem to know where I live".
