Lyrically, Computers And Blues finds The Streets' Mike Skinner returning to the more direct tales he told on his earlier albums, and this song finds him spelling out a failing relationship. He told The Daily Record: "Some people thought I came up with all those parables on Everything Is Borrowed to protect myself emotionally. But I was trying to stretch my creativity to see if it could survive not talking about the present day. I can see now why that distanced people, so I've tried not to fall into the same trap this time."
"Crank That (Soulja Boy)" was the most successful digital track of 2007 in the US with 2,909,000 downloads. On January 6, 2008 it became the first song ever to sell 3 million digital copies in the States.
