  • Lyrics
  • 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."
