It seems that the odds were stacked against his girl friends, though. "It was so strange but D.C., I guess, is one of these weird towns where there aren't many single men, or desirable single men," the former Q and Not U drummer says of his hometown.
The peppy beat pop song, which is the lead single for Title Tracks' February-released debut album 'It Was Easy,' takes more than its style from the 1960s Brit invasion bands. The song's third-person perspective, says Davis, is reminiscent of the Beatles 'She Loves You,' where the narrator is also talking to a friend about their situation.
"It's a little bit different from the songs on the rest of the album. It's like I'm talking to you, my friend, about you and this other person. I find that an interesting stance as a narrator in a song. More frequently songs are about I feel this way, I am upset, I love you. This is interesting to take the point like how 'She Loves You' is as this third person. For me, a lot of the songs I write, it's about just me or about me and you. But not about you guys!"
Davis is happy to report that the song's real-life inspirations have ended up in relationships, even if they haven't had a ring put on it: "Most of the people that were the subjects of that song have now found people who are developing into good things."
