This was released as the lead single from Anglo-Swedish indie rock band Razorlight's debut album Up All Night.
The rhythm and guitar riff was heavily influenced by the Cure's "10.15 Saturday Night" from their 1979 debut album Three Imaginary Boys.
The song is about the London-based based DJ and party girl Mairead Nash, with whom frontman Johnny Borrell had a brief relationship. Nash has been the inspiration for several other songs, including The Von Bondies' "Mairead" and Graham Coxon's "No Good Time."
Kid Rock's "All Summer Long" is a mashup of "Werewolves Of London" and "Sweet Home Alabama." The album it came from was released in October, 2007, but they held off until summer, 2008 for a more seasonable release.
