In an interview Robby says about this song: "I used to watch the original many years ago but I really donít know much about it. We recorded that as we were travelling on our last tour actually during the summer. We stopped off at the studio in Memphis and recorded that there. Itís just sort of a one off thing. I donít know much about the show but I assume that itís a younger, much chipper version than a lot of excuses for gratuitous ďt.n.a.Ē shots and cars jumping over ramps and stuff."
The BMI Repertoire database website lists "How Long" as an alternative title for The Best of Me.
