Chris wrote this song while working on the movie Singles. In the film, Matt Dillon's character, Cliff Poncier, peddles his tape of solo songs. The fictitious tracklist was devised by Jeff Ament of Pearl Jam, who was also working on the film. Cornell recorded songs with those titles on a 4-track tape machine, which is what Cliff Poncier would have used. One of those songs is "Flutter Girl," which Cornell turned into a heartaching song about a delicate girl he is setting free, as she is better off without him.
