This is the title track of Sam Smith's debut EP. He explained the song's meaning to Interview Magazine: "There were four of us in the room and we all wrote it about things individually. It's about doing something at night time, one night, and not worrying commitment or worrying about anything else in life. It's about something—a person, a thing—taking over you and taking you to somewhere just for a little bit."
"Crank That (Soulja Boy)" was the most successful digital track of 2007 in the US with 2,909,000 downloads. On January 6, 2008 it became the first song ever to sell 3 million digital copies in the States.
"Sloop John B" is a traditional West Indian folk song, and it was a huge hit for The Beach Boys in 1966. They tweaked the lyric, "This is the worst trip since I've been born" to "...I've ever been on" as a wink to acid culture.
