Songfacts®:

  • In this song, lead singer Andrew Stockdale sings about a very appealing woman who understands him.

    This "woman" is, in fact, the city of Sydney, Australia, where Stockdale was living when he wrote it. "It was an overall impression of living in this beautiful city in the harbor," he said in his Songfacts interview.
  • This song is a playable track in the video game Guitar Hero II for the Playstation 2 and Xbox 360 video game systems. In this game, players use a guitar-shaped peripheral, and "play" various real rock songs by holding down fret buttons on the neck of the "guitar" and strumming the strum bar, according to the notes scrolling on the television screen.
  • At the 2007 Grammy Awards this song won for Best Hard Rock Performance. >>
