One night last winter, Jessie Ware and Miguel decided to get drunk. They had been writing some songs for Ware’s second album, Tough Love , at New York’s Record Plant studio, and after a long day of work, they had completed the fun, flirtatious “Kind of… Sometimes… Maybe.” “We both really like whiskey,” Ware says with a laugh. “The first line of the song is, ‘Do I get lonely at all?/No, ’cause Jamie and Johnny and Jack keep me warm.’ So that night we were like, ‘Fuck yeah, let’s celebrate, let’s have whiskeys!'” Fall Music Preview 2014: 25 Must-Hear Albums The next morning, she says, “I had the worst hangover.

And it was value for money, with three hit singles: “Hungry,” “Good Thing” and “The Great Airplane Strike,” a topical romp based on a labor dispute that grounded airlines for five weeks in 1966. I still hear that one going through my head every time I have the dubious pleasure of getting on a plane.
