This moody slow burner seems to reflect Zayn's state of mind during his time with One Direction. His last public performance as a member of 1D was their On the Road Again Tour gig in Hong Kong on March 18, 2015. There were four members left in One Direction after Zayn departed the band.
The concept behind the song was created while Zayn was in Las Vegas. His producer Malay Ho, who is best known for executive producing Frank Ocean's Channel Orange, recalled to Fader: "We were sitting in the club and he was just like, 'This situation, me in Vegas, I've done this before a million times, like all over the world, but not like this.' It was a super simple concept, but that perspective comes from what he experienced at such a young age."
Not only is this the fourth track on Mind Of Mine, it was also the fourth song to be released off the album.
"Come Dancing" by The Kinks was inspired by the older sister of Ray Davies, who would make guys take her out dancing and spend their money on her, only to send them home frustrated with just a peck on the cheek.
If counterpoint and polyrhythms are your thing, you might love these guys. Even by Progressive Rock standards, they were one of the most intricate bands of the '70s. Then their lead singer gave us Bon Jovi.
