Thankyou Whoever You Are

Introduction: In an interview with Songfacts, h revealed, “That was inspired by own children, actually. It was a little love song to my son, who wasn't that old at the time. He was a baby.

"But it was also inspired as a statement of thanks to people you haven't even met. So in that sense, it was aimed at our own fans - we're indebted to our fans. I mean, we're probably the band who knows most of our fans! I recognize probably 30 percent of them if they pass me on the street, because I'm so used to seeing them over the years.

"We have a very hardcore fan base. There is a lot of them, but we do get to see them fairly often. Over the years, you get to recognize the faces, and you get to know a few of them as well. Some of our fans have become good friends. Some of our fans have even represented us in court! [Laughs] We've got barristers and company executives amongst our fans now. They are occasionally a godsend."

According to Lucy Jordache, the reason that 'Thankyou' is written as one word is simply h's whim. Cf 'bloodyenglishweather' in The Only Unforgivable Thing.
