Dirty Little Thing

Album: We Are Harlot (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • According to We Are Harlot, much of their eponymous debut album is about sex. Guitarist Jeff George told HMV.com: "It's best summed by the song 'Dirty Little Thing.' We'd finished the music and Danny (Worsnop) woke up at the crack of 4pm and wandered out, I said to him 'Dude we've got to write the lyrics for that song today', he was like 'No, I don't want to', so I said to him 'Well how was that girl you were with last night?' and he goes 'Oh she was a dirty little thing!'"

    He added: "An hour later we're back in the pub and we've got the song done."
