At 7:32, this is the longest track on any of Wild Beasts first three albums, making this one of the band's less accurate song titles. Bassist Tom Fleming discussed the song in an interview with Drowned In Sound: "Where we stitched together all the Reich repetitions, the Ronnie harmonies and the Oneohtrix swells that we had been doing for the weeks in our industrial basement. We were persuaded into keeping this to seven minutes, when we play it live it will be somewhere between seven and seventy. We were thinking MBV's holocaust section, but gentler, and rising. I had just seen Swans, and got (1985 piano composition) 'For Bunita Marcus.' so we've got acquainted with having patience, but this has as much to do with the Cocteau Twins. It is a joy to play."
"Kickstart My Heart" is about all the ways Motley Crue gets their blood flowing without drugs. It was inspired by their bass player Nikki Sixx, who claimed he had to be revived with a shot of adrenaline to the heart after an overdose.
The Flaming Lips' "Do You Realize??" was named in March 2009 the official Rock Song of Oklahoma. Four years later, Oklahoma's governor Mary Fallin pulled the tune as the state's official rock song in a move her office said had more to do with priorities than musical taste.
