Teddy Thompson spoke to The Sun
August 15, 2008 regarding this ironic song about suicide. He explained: "That was always tongue in cheek for me. I was heading for Randy Newman
territory with a little bit of black humor. I thought it was obvious and quite funny and then when we turned it in to the record label in America they had a total meltdown. We had the sound of a gunshot and they made us take that off. They said: 'You can't! None of the stores will carry it.' People get overly sensitive. I know suicide in itself isn't really that funny, but you're in serious trouble if you can't laugh at something."
