Songfacts®:

  • Reenie Hollis told Drowned In Sound that this song "was a bit of fun." He explained: "Kate [Jackson, singer]'s a fan of fringe sports like darts and motor racing, so that's the motivation behind it. We always hoped we'd get it on one of the darts programmes, on Bullseye or something like that. We really should have got in touch with them but never got round to it! It stands out because it was one of the first (if not the first) song that Kate wrote the lyrics for."
  • The lyrics mention British darts player Bobby George and darts commentator Sid Waddell.
  • This was originally on the B-side of the 2004 "Giddy Stratospheres" single.
