This song takes its name from a jewelery shop in London's Soho, however the lyrics make no mention of the retail store. Bass player Rhys Webb told NME: "It was written with the quirkiness of some great English '60s pop in mind. We always like tracks with people's name in the title too."
Guitarist Joshua Haywood not only built The Horrors's studio in which most of Skying was recorded, but also everything inside it including a big synthesizer that's controlled by a guitar. Synth player Tom Cowan told NME: "Josh's guitar modular synth is used to great effect all over this one, screaming and whining like a Jaguar possessed."
"Kickstart My Heart" is about all the ways Motley Crue gets their blood flowing without drugs. It was inspired by their bass player Nikki Sixx, who claimed he had to be revived with a shot of adrenaline to the heart after an overdose.
Jimi Hendrix opened for The Monkees on their 1967 tour, and it did not go well. The young, mostly female crowd shouted "Davy" when Hendrix sang the word "Lady" in "Foxy Lady" in honor of who they came to see: Monkees lead singer Davy Jones.
