This was originally released in September's native Sweden in June 2007, where it was a Top 10 hit, followed by in the US a few months later. After charting in many other European countries in early 2008, the song was released in the UK and Australia with a new remix in 2009.
This was written by Anoo Bhagavan, (who also contributed backing vocals,) Jonas von der Burg (who also produced the song) and Niklas von der Burg. The trio wrote all the tracks on Dancing Shoes.
Phil Oakey recorded his vocals for "Don't You Want Me" in the studio bathroom. The recording was disrupted by guitarist Jo Callis reaching through an open window from outside to repeatedly flush one of the toilets.
Carla Thomas became the first woman to achieve a Top 10 hit on the Hot 100 with a song she wrote herself when "Gee Whiz (Look At His Eyes)" reached the chart's top tier in 1961. Thomas was just 16-years-old when she penned it.
The lyrics to "Heartbreak Hotel" were written by a steel guitar player who was once a dishwasher repairman. He was inspired by a newspaper story about a man who killed himself and left behind a note saying only, "I walk a lonely street."
