This song is largely based on a night that Nicholas Petricca had at Funky Soul Saturday at The Echo in Echo Park, Los Angeles : “We were at the bar, and it was taking forever to get a drink. I was frustrated because there was great music playing and I wanted to be out there,” he remembered. His girlfriend, in “a backless dress and some beat up sneaks”, abruptly invited him to dance with her, inspiring the song’s title.
Recorded 100% Live at a Debbie and Peter’s wedding in Christchurch. Congratulations to them both, and thank you very much for having us.
