Have Fun Tonight

Songfacts®:

  • Fischerspooner singer Casey Spooner told Consequence of Sound the story behind this song:

    "I spent two summers on Fire Island and I came to appreciate really really big summer pop hits and decided that I wanted to write a summer pop hit that was also super queer and built for the dance floor, built for Fire Island. I was really inspired by Ariana Grande's 'So Into You.' I loved that song and I loved the sorta innate sadness that was in it.

    The idea was to write a song about polyamory and about encouraging your lover to go out and have fun with you. And that you would always be there waiting for them to come home and tell you everything that happened. No fear. No shame. No jealousy. Total trust."
  • This was released as the lead single from Sir on August 4, 2017. The entire record was co-written and co-produced by R.E.M. legend Michael Stipe.
