Amongst the left-field influences for the American Pop-Punk band All Time Low's fourth studio album, Dirty Work, is Jazz legend Ella Fitzgerald. Lyrically, a tribute to the First Lady of Song, "Under a Paper Moon" finds frontman Alex Gaskarth attempting to expand on the ideas presented in her version of the standard "It's Only A Paper Moon." "I think what a lot of people don't realize is that - especially for some of our older fans who knew us as the guys who grew up on Blink and Green Day - is that I have very eclectic tastes in music," Gaskarth told Billboard magazine. "Especially on this record, those influences really came into play."
The Eurythmics' "Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)" came top of a 2013 Spotify poll to find out which songs music fans most commonly hear people singing incorrectly. Many believe Annie Lennox is singing: "Sweet dreams are made of cheese, who am I to disagree?"
"Come Dancing" by The Kinks was inspired by the older sister of Ray Davies, who would make guys take her out dancing and spend their money on her, only to send them home frustrated with just a peck on the cheek.
