''I call "Maneater" a couture pop song. It's like having too much cheesecake, in a good way. It's got a crazy loud beat, and the vocals are bitchy and loud. A lot of people say it sounds like Peaches, because of the delivery, the spooky vocals. Dancing in your underwear in front of the mirror, you're there and you don't care. Everybody does it. Everybody's just hot on themselves, "Oh, I'm turning myself on." - Nelly Furtado
''Nate Hill had this ferocious beat up, and there was this crazy, tribal voodoo energy in the room. I've never felt anything like it - it was so intense. The volume was turned up to 11, and all of a sudden I started to smell smoke. I looked at the speaker and flames were shooting out of it. Actually we were scared of the beat. We felt like it had the devil in it, or something. We put it away for a few weeks, until we had the courage to play it again. It was life-threatening!'' - Nelly Furtado
