In an interview with the music site "ireallylovemusic", James Murphy the leader of the group explained his inspiration for the song:. I'm out of a job! These are my records! Did I make the records? Did I fuck! So, I started becoming horrified by my own attitude. I had this moment of glory though. People would use me to DJ just to get them cool. They'd be like 'It's the cool rock disco guy' and this was really weird.
And to be honest I was afraid that this new found coolness was going to go away and that's where ' Losing My Edge' comes from. It is about being horrified by Losing My Edge - Various - Esound Twelve own silliness. And then it became a wider thing about people who grip onto other Losing My Edge - Various - Esound Twelve creations like they are their own.

So I made that song, and everybody thought it was terrible.
I remember playing it to people, and they'd give you this face makes a face of surprise and doubtyou know, when they don't want to say anything! And they'd ask me about technical stuff like 'Oh, what are the drums? And Phil Mossman, who was the original LCD guitar player, was the only person that was like 'I love this, I really love this, it's very funny'. So we put it out, and the people from the label, my two partners Tim and Jonathan afterwards said 'We just Losing My Edge - Various - Esound Twelve you The Spawn Of Love And War - Cradle Of Filth - Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa making a big mistake, you're gonna look like an idiot, and we just feel bad for you'.
