This was Aztec Camera's attempt to do a Joy Division-type song. Frontman Raddy Frame explained to Q magazine: "The first time we got to play it was in 1980 on the day that (Joy Division vocalist) Ian Curtis died. We sent a demo to The Teardrop Explodes' label (Zoo Records) and we ended up supporting them. It was Julian (Cope) who broke the news about Ian Curtis. We were in shock."
"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.
