Frontman Paul Smith told the New Musical Express January 17, 2009 about this song concerning a roller disco: "Lucas (Wooller, keyboards) was saying 'a roller disco is really sort of upbeat and a fun image and really colourful whereas the song's really dark.' So we had a bit of a fight and beat that one up a bit more."
Smith (from Drowned In Sound): "For a kickoff, I thought this was a funny title. Secondly, it's quite a dark song and I like a good contradiction. Thirdly, the chorus was a tricky bugger, but when something feels right, everything becomes clear, which is what happened in the studio. It's a song about the early period of a romance where you want to put on the brakes and enjoy the moment. The lift in the middle section is one of my favorite moments on the album."
The TV show Cheers was nearly canceled after its first season, but the theme song, "Where Everybody Knows Your Name," was very popular. To satisfy viewer demand, the theme was made into a full song and released as a single.
