"Fred Astaire" as written by and Nicholas James Gardner Jordi James Davieson....
Well of course I miss you, baby
I've been thinking lately
That you don't need me anymore
You'd be better with Fred Astaire
He could take you anywhere
If you ask him to

And God knows
That its a common misconception
That I'm the only one for you
And I could take you out for breakfast
But he could take you 'round the world

Fred Astaire's the man for you

Well, he could buy you a diamond ring
Or he could get you anything
If you ask him to
He probably know how to dance
And he could fly you to France
And you could do it all night long

    My InterpretationI would say having listened to this song several times in the last few days (I'm slightly obsessed with it,lol) that it is a song about a guy feeling inadequate and not good enough for his current or most recent partner/girlfriend and he's resigned to losing her to another man. The name, Fred Astaire, is used in the song as a sensationalised idea of a perfect man to get across the idea that this other man is much richer, better looking, more sensitive and more talented than him and it's as if he's almost advertising this man so that he can have some kind of closure about losing the girl knowing she'll be happier with him. Probably my favourite song this summer, was great to finally see them live at Leeds festival a few weeks ago :)
