Songfacts®:

  • This camp disco song is a deliberate rebuke to the Bee Gees disco standard "You Should Be Dancing." In the Daily Telegraph on September 9, 2006, Babydaddy puts it, "Our life wasn't that song, as much as we wanted it to be."
  • In the Brit Awards 2007 magazine, Jake Shears called this "The happiest-sounding song ever written about staying in and feeling miserable."
