“The rhythm is a bit like Ray Charles’ What’d I Say. ‘Ding-ding-ding-dee-ding-ding-dee-ding’ – it's got that top part on the rhythm. That's where The Beatles got I Feel Fine from – that's what George told me. It’s kind of rumba or something, and then you put a rock beat under it.
“It's something we've never done before. Typically, we keep our rhythms pretty simple in form – 4/4 four and basic. This one, we wanted to have a little bit of a different groove. We tried that kind of thing over the top, against the lower beat, and it worked really well.
“Now, this is one that we actually did demo for. Most of the songs that I write – I wrote this with Tom – I’ll demo at home, usually. So we do with work a template. Then Tom, if he likes it, will write words and we'll go on and play it with the band.
“My demo had a different chorus. When Tom got it, he said, ‘I want to change the chords in the chorus because I want to sing there. We put a new chorus in it with him playing most of the rhythm guitars. He did a great job on the lyrics, as always.”
“It's interesting, the main guitar, the stabbing guitar and the wah-wah guitar, was this model that we hardly ever play, but I pulled it out that day. It's a Fender Thinline, kind of semi-hollow body, butterscotch-looking thing. On this track, I actually used a Marshall mini amp, about the size of a Princeton. The room I was in really made that sound – I got lucky that day.”
