Songfacts®:

  • This song incorporates the irony that Click Five keyboardist/songwriter Ben Romans likes to talk about in his writing. He told us: "We really enjoy this song because It's like, 'I quit, but I'm not giving you up.' I find it ironic, because a lot of times people are like, 'Oh, you should have quit by now,' but there's just something that keeps you hanging on, whatever it is."
  • The release of this song on vinyl as a collectible item is something the band decided to do as a sort of "fun little item" for their fans. Not only do they get the 7" vinyl edition of the song, but they also get an MP3, so if you don't have a turntable, all is not lost. Only 1,000 copies were released.
  • Ben took time to talk about the process of putting together an album: "Tracking is just recording. It goes in phases. There's pre-production, getting everything ready for the songs; and then it's just all about trying options, finding the best option, and then actually recording. And then we have a couple more songs to mix, get them mastered, and then we should be all groovy." (Check out the full Ben Romans interview.)
