Extensive Definition

"Obviously" is the second single from the British pop band McFly. It was their second number one single on the UK Singles Chart. It topped the charts for one week.
The CD features a cover version of The Beatles' "Help!". The band recorded a special interview that could be heard on the Maxi and 12" Picture disc where they responded to questions posted by their fans.

The Song

The second track was written by two of the band members, Tom Fletcher and Danny Jones, and former Busted member James Bourne. The track is generally considered "lighter" and much more "laid-back" than their last single, "Five Colours in Her Hair". The lyrics speak of a young woman the band members fancy but cannot have due to the fact she has a boyfriend who's older than them and in the Marines. It came fifth in a BBC poll to find the UK's Top 40 Singles of 2004.The boys say their inspiration for the song came from James Aitken.
