  • This is the lead single from Tired Pony's second album, The Ghost Of The Mountain. The song was written by frontman Gary Lightbody at 3am after the band had celebrated the conclusion of the recording sessions. He penned the tune from start to finish in the same time it takes to play. It was added the next day when producer Jacknife Lee remarked upon hearing it, "Well, we have to record this."
  • The song features a vocal contribution from Minnie Driver. Best known as an actress in such films as Good Will Hunting, Driver was a member of a band called Puff, Rocks and Brown early in her career. She signed a solo contract with EMI and Rounder Records in 2001, charting in her native UK with two singles. "Everything I've Got in My Pocket" reached #34, "Invisible Girl" peaked at #68.
