Songfacts®:

  • This warm and groovy country rocker finds vocalist Jeff Tweedy revealing a fine falsetto as he tells of his love for his beau. "I'm simple as a matter of fact… I still love you to death/And I won't ever forget how," he croons.
  • The song is one of the most pop-friendly tracks on Wilco's eighth album, The Whole Love. Tweedy described the tune to Spin magazine as, "Other people's pop music that doesn't sound like pop music."
  • Tweedy's teenage son Spencer directed the music video, which features appearances from fashion blogger Tavi Gevinson, Spencer's little brother, Sammy, and his friend, Joey.
