Number One

In episode 70 of The Corona Diaries, h talks about the origin of the song. "I wrote those words on holiday. I think I was listening to Whitney Houston on the radio. Whitney - God rest her soul - is a great singer, technically, but quite often... well, probably she got Sony Music on her neck, but we probably could have had a lot more out of Whitney if there weren't trying to make her be a megastar.

"[...]There still is, but I thought back then there was this tendency for record labels to find these incredible singers and push them into all these vocal acrobatics because they could do it, and you'd end up losing the meaning of the song or the soul, or maybe the song wouldn't have any meaning in the first place, you know, but it would be singers showing off. It's a song about ambition; don't you ever wonder if this will to win is a weakness, because it often is."

'You're scorin' at least 5.9'
Scoring in figure skating was, at the time the song was written, out of a maximum of 6 points per judge. Known as the 6.0 system, this method of scoring was replaced by a new system, the ISU Judging System in 2004. Competitors are now scored out of 10.
