Songfacts®:

  • Frontman Kelly Jones told The Sun his bandmates respect the fact he's the best songwriter in Sterephonics and that they let him write the songs. However, occasionally one of the others will contribute, such as guitarist Adam Zindani.

    "Adam the guitar player sometimes chucks a riff to me and I'll make something of it, like with the song Taken A Tumble," he explained. "We'd opened up for Bruce Springsteen that night and I went back to my room and he gave me a little lick and I turned that into a song and wrote all of the lyrics. Very occasionally, someone will throw me a bone and I'll make something out of it. Other than that I bring the songs in and they all chuck their parts in and what they feel they can contribute to it."
