Album: The Virgins (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • The Virgins are open to borrowing ideas from teen friendly Pop songs for their tunes. Bassist Nick Zarin-Ackerman told The New Musical Express January 10, 2009 that this song was inspired by 1980s boy band New Edition. He added that frontman and chief songwriter Donald Cumming was "like, 'What would a Bobby Brown chorus be?' and I came up with that hook."
