This piece is a classic example of the musical variation of second wave ska. A B-side on The Specials' Ghost Town single, Friday Night, Saturday Morning, never saw the light of an album. Straying from reggae more than other The Specials tunes, it represents not simply the two-toned racial construction of second wave ska, but the two-toned musical influence of traditional Jamaican ska and British punk.

The irony in this song is that while the lyricist lives a highly social weekend, he spends quite a bit of time on the edge of the dance floor and still feels lonely when the night is over.
