Charted: 3

Songfacts®:

  • Agnes (full name Agnes Carlsson) is a Swedish electro pop singer, who first came to the public's attention in 2005 when she won the second series of the Swedish singing competition Idol. This song was the second single from her third album Dance Love Pop. It also received an international release, marking the first time any of Agnes' records had been released outside of her home country.
  • Agnes co-wrote three tracks on Dance Love Pop, including this song. She explained to Don't StopThe Pop: "I had an idea and me and my producer worked on the song and developed it. Agnes added: "My first thought about the song - I had a picture in my head - you are on a dance floor - the only thing you have in mind is yourself and the music - you don't think about today or tomorrow.... It's a nice mix in the song. At the same time it's an up tempo dance song - but the lyrics have a meaning and a deeper thought."
