The song is built around a sample of Laurie Anderson's "O Superman
." Milo Cordell of Big Pink told CMU
why he decided to borrow from the half sung, half spoken 1981 hit. "I had just been to the Barbican to see an art show of hers and I was talking to my brother, who is fifteen years older than me, and he said he remembered when 'O Superman' first came out and when he heard it on the radio how weird and out of place it sounded. I immediately went to search it out, found it, and knew from the opening ten seconds that I could sample it and make something fun around it."
