Toby Keith penned this song with his his frequent collaborator, Bobby Pinson. Keith recalled: "I had the verse and chorus and sang them to Bobby one afternoon. He took off on it immediately and we frolicked all the way through."
Keith explained why he sees this as a great song to open his concerts: "It's funny to say and I think it will work great live. 'I got stoned this morning, but I haven't had a drink all day.' It's like justifying your high. It's just a wild, hard-driving, hard-hitting live song – what you want to come onstage with. You want to walk on, lay that sucker out there and kind of say, 'I'm setting the tone right here.'"
The song "Sadeness" by Enigma (the one with the chanting monks), got its name from the French novelist Marquis de Sade, who believed sex had to be painful in order to be pleasurable - thus the word "sadism."
