The groovy, bouncy track was inspired by James Dean and his performance in the movie Giant, which was filmed in Marfa, Texas where Deerhunter recorded a large chunk of their album. The track is upbeat with a catchy melody and elaborate, hooky lyricism like, “Oh James/ You’ve got no reason to stay in these plains/ These plains/ are barren and hateful to rain.”
