Tunstall spoke to MTV News about this track: "It's a song on the album that I really had a good attachment with. I think it's a signature tune off the album. I started writing it when I was 17 and it basically took me some years to get it to its current state. It's basically about teenage sex - when you meet that special someone, and there's that magical little space before you actually touch each other."
Stephens Stills played timbales on the Bee Gees hit, "You Should Be Dancing." He was in the next door studio laying down a Crosby, Stills and Nash album and could hear Saturday Night Fever being recorded. Stills recognized its potential to be a monster hit and he wanted to contribute.
