Just like one would expect from the song title, Nerina Pallot’s song “Everything’s Illuminated” is based on the  Dave Eggers book of the same name.

Pallot told The Independent:

“I’m lazy, so if I’m stuck for a title, I’ll nick it from a book…I was thinking about the opening section of the book, where rabbis are arguing about where we find the God in ourselves. I was brought up a Catholic, being told I was s–t and must repent. How can anyone find any joy in themselves then?”
