Extensive Definition

"Shutterbug" is a song by the alternative rock band Veruca Salt, released on the album Eight Arms to Hold You. It was written by Louise Post in which she was the lead singer for the song, with Nina Gordon performing backup vocals.
Post has said that the three parts of the song are like snapshots from different times in her life. The "she" featured in the song is PJ Harvey.
Veruca Salt performed Shutterbug on Saturday Night Live. Because Sting was hosting the show that evening, he performed one of his solo songs instead of Veruca Salt performing a second song.
