Songfacts®:

  • This was inspired by a female model Just Jack met in a club. In the Daily Mail, April 13, 2007, he said: "The girl in the club is the focus of the song, but I've dragged in other characters too. It's about grown-up clubbers who should have moved on to something better. It's a sad situation, but there's also some hope there.
  • This song shows Just Jack's love of French dance music. "It's a big influence, as funk, jazz and disco never became dirty words in France," he says.
