"Miss You Love" is the 5th track on Silverchair's third album, Neon Ballroom. According to the drummer Ben Gilles, it was "weird" filming the video clip for it, because they didn't use instruments and just sat in a movie theatre most of the video.

Deconstruction of the first part of the song using concepts of music: At the beginning of the piece the pitch of vocals and instruments moves up and down in harmony with the vocals handling the melody and the instruments accompanying, this is soon followed with the instruments changing to a lower pitch with the vocals, creating a darker timbre.

The music also gradually builds, at the beginning the guitar is just picking the strings and the vocals are overpowering it a little. As the song progresses the vocals stay the same and the instruments build, first the low timbre of the Bass then drums come in subito (suddenly).
