Stafford told The Huffington Post
: "When I heard Pat's demo of 'Save Me, San Francisco,' I really got goose bumps, I felt like it was a really impressive hit song. I love the chorus so much, you know, with that gospel singer vibe. It had a Stones attitude, like a loose kind of f--- off rock song. Lyrically, it's a good pop song, but as a whole, it has a good groove and is really fun to play."
