Songfacts®:

  • This blast of high-octane rock opens with distorted guitar effects before Fender starts spitting out lyrics about one-night stands.

    She said
    "I don't usually do this kind of thing
    Does it change the way you think of me?"
    Thinkin' isn't his forte


    Throughout the song, Fender takes a jaundiced view of casual sex as he outlines its emotional ambiguity.
  • Fender told Radio X that he drew inspiration for the lyrics from observing the casual hookups at The Cut, a nightclub in Newcastle's city center.
  • The song was released as the sixth single from Fender's debut studio album, Hypersonic Missiles. The record is noteworthy or its lack of love songs - "Will We Talk?" is the closest he gets.
