This song allies an energetic tempo to bruised lyrics. Singer Fran Healy explained the song's meaning to The Sun: "The song is about the awful feeling of seeing your girl with another guy. I write it on the back of a jam we made early in recording. I wanted the lyric to be a sort of classic Phil Spector-era bubblegum heartbreak."
The song's lo-fi music video was shot on VHS and directed by German feature film director Wolfgang Becker (Goodbye Lenin) who also plays the menacing "another guy" in the clip. Healy said: "Wolfgang Becker made a little dramatization which does all the things a Travis video should do. We decided, in light of everything going hi definition, we'd shoot on a VHS camera. Also we asked Wolfgang to star in it because HE IS THE COOLEST GUY IN BERLIN."
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."
