Yea the outfield was especially a dig for "Getting back together" as I got dumped fresh off the plane in London, it turns out the new BF was the Drummer in a band we came to know 2 months later as the Outfield. All Over MTV, Ugh.
I was surprised by some it grabbed and the fact that there were none by U2 or the Alarm...
