Songfacts®:

  • Modjo is French duo Yann Destagnol and Romain Tranchart. This is the first song they did together.
  • This mainstream House song was a hit in dance clubs long before radio stations started playing it. Most club hits never make it to the radio.
  • The distinctive main guitar riff from "Soup For One" by Chic was sampled for this. >>

  • When this hit UK #1, Modjo had not released any other songs.
  • The lyrics are about a guy who meets a girl at a disco. The words are very simple, which the group claims is because this was their first effort and neither of them are good at writing lyrics.
  • The B-side of the single is an acoustic version of the same song.
