Songfacts®:

  • This song samples Ennio Morricone's theme for the Spaghetti Western, The Good The Bad and The Ugly. Tom Parker of The Wanted explained how they ended up paying homage to such a random song. Said Tom: "We wrote it with (Robbie Williams' former collaborator) Guy Chambers. Once he had permission from the guy that wrote it, he was like, 'I want you boys to have this track'. It takes it in a different direction. We were going to release that as a single. I'm not sure we're going to anymore, we might do. But we wanted to get Clint Eastwood in the video. That would be so cool."
