In a 2022 Songfacts interview with Tracy Bonham
, she told the story behind this song. "It was specifically for the movie," she said. "My product manager asked me to write a song for Bridget Jones's Diary
. I'd probably gotten the script, and I wrote a song that was lyric-driven. It was unlike anything I'd written. I was a little nervous about it because it seemed a little more mainstream than what I had wanted to portray. I wanted to be an edgy artist.
We went into a studio and recorded that as a one-off. Now, I love it because I'm not so precious, but back then I was still trying to be cool. I was still trying to shoegaze and sound like I'm not trying too hard. But that song now I'm really proud of. It's got a very Beatle-esque vibe. It's got kind of a James Bond vibe and I love the lyrics because now that I'm not so precious anymore I can really get behind those lyrics and feel really confident about that as a song and my songwriting. I'm really proud of that message."
