In this nostalgic song, Ringo sings about his life growing up in Liverpool, touring with Rory Storm and The Hurricanes, and joining The Beatles. He left Liverpool to go on these adventures, but he made the city proud.
Ringo named the song and the album "Liverpool 08" to celebrate the city's selection as the 2008 European Capital of Culture. Every year, the European Union selects a city for the award.
"Come Dancing" by The Kinks was inspired by the older sister of Ray Davies, who would make guys take her out dancing and spend their money on her, only to send them home frustrated with just a peck on the cheek.
Walk The Moon vocalist Nicholas Petricca got the idea for "Shut Up and Dance" when he and his girlfriend were taking forever to get drinks at a Los Angeles club bar. Petricca was getting frustrated, so his girlfriend told him to, "Shut up and dance with me!'"
