Ting Ting Jules De Martino explained to Rhapsody that this song was about how after years of struggling to make it with different bands, the duo were finding themselves on the brink of success: "By this stage of recording, we were definitely the Ting Tings. We were getting a lot of radio stations announcing our house parties at this mill in Manchester. People started saying, 'They're going to be the biggest thing in 2008,' and it just got out of hand. That song is about getting yourself in that situation and not losing control, keeping your head."
Boston leader Tom Scholz went back to his job at Polaroid after releasing the group's debut album. When his co-workers kept coming by to tell him "More Than A Feeling" was playing on the radio, he knew it was time to quit his day job.
