This ode to love was written by the British songwriters Steve Mac and Karen Poole and originally recorded by the all-female German Pop group No Angels for their 2007 Destiny album. Released as the album's third single as a double A-single along with a cover of Womack & Womack's "Teardrops," it peaked at #25 on the German Singles Chart. Union J re-recorded it for their debut self-titled album, putting their own twist on it.
"Sloop John B" is a traditional West Indian folk song, and it was a huge hit for The Beach Boys in 1966. They tweaked the lyric, "This is the worst trip since I've been born" to "...I've ever been on" as a wink to acid culture.
