This was the first song to come in for the album, just a couple of weeks after we'd sent out the first wave of invitations. Linda recorded the track on New Year's Eve with her friend Rob Woodcock on double bass and Major Matt Mason behind the mixing desk, and sent the final version to us a couple of days later. From the very first listen, we knew it would make a great album opener. Light, fluffy and fun, it has a playful bounce that pulls you in, the bassline delivering an irresistible kinetic urge to the feet, and a distinctive vocal that's really hard not to sing along to. Also, it features Linda's harmonica playing debut. History in the making.
