Singer Alex Turner wrote this about going to meet his girlfriend in room 505 at the hotel where she's staying. Turner has admitted that this was the first proper love song the Arctic's have done.
Alex Turner's friend Miles Kane of The Rascals played additional guitars on this track. In 2008 Turner and Kane released an album together as The Last Shadow Puppets.
This includes a sample of an organ taken from Ennio Morricone's soundtrack for The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.

No one ever comment on this song...i think this is why this song is the most underated song of The Monkees, but in my opinion I think it's one of their best. I like the way the tempo progress: slow...mid....and rocking fast. A good song.
