SONGS I WANT TO KNOW THE BACKSTORY TO

  1. Arctic Monkeys - Mad Sounds
    This track is noticeably different than the other AM tracks. I've always wondered what inspired the change.
  2. Coldplay - Magic
    I don't know if Chris Martin even writes their songs, but I wonder who he was thinking of when he wrote, or at least recorded, this song since his relationship with Gwyneth Paltrow was already on the outs.
  3. Blake Shelton - Sangria
    Same. I always wonder when an artist gets divorced soon after upbeat love songs are released whether they wrote with their then spouse in mind, or whether another person was the inspiration for the song and the split.
