Album: Which Bitch? (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • Kieren Webster (vocals/bass) (from The View Are On Fire): "It's about people in Dundee reveling in the fact that they're skint. It says, 'Never throw away a sunny day.' 'Cause my mate Nigel says that he'll never work in the summer. But he doesn't work in the winter either…"
  • Kyle Falconer (vocals/guitar) explained to The View Are On Fire: "Reni, the guy who plays keyboards with us, wrote the chorus and we'd always tried to put a tune to it, 'cause he never had any verses. So we had the chorus for ages and then we tried to play it but it wasn't really working. We were in the recording studio one night and everyone was going to bed 'cause we'd been up for ages working. And me and Kieren just sat down with two guitars and just started playing."
