About Going Down Town Tonight

"Going Down Town Tonight" is a single released by the British rock band Status Quo in 1984. A different version was included on the album Back to Back. It was written by a songwriter/pianist called Guy Johnson. Johnson had originally approached Rossi with some demo pieces in 1981 and Rossi later signed him to his publishing company Dump Music. The song was re-recorded and extended for this release. The picture sleeve featured a cartoon drawing of the band by Rob Fletcher, an artist who has also worked extensively with Bob Young. "Too Close To The Ground" had also been a planned single, as adverts in the press announced that it was to be the band's new single.

I'm going down town tonight, I'm gonna find myself a dream
I'm gonna dress up right, and be the best they've ever seen
You can tell from their eyes, you can tell from their eyes
That they're never impressed, that they're never impressed
From the way they walk round, from the way they walk round
They are used to the best, they are used to the best

Going down town tonight, going down town tonight
Going down town tonight, going down town tonight

Why let them break you in with self-sophisticated praise
'cause when the cards are low you see the smile come on their face
If you speak the right words, if you speak the right words
They will hear what you say, they will hear what you say
They will take your attention, just take your attention
And then turn away, and then turn away

Going down town tonight, going down town tonight
Going down town tonight, going down town tonight

Just one thing before you go my ladies of the night
Just one thing I have to say I've got you, and you're
Confident and debonair you move between the stars
Hungry for those staring eyes that fill your waking hours

Going down town tonight, going down town tonight
Going down town tonight, going down town tonight
Going down town tonight, going down town tonight

Your face is all run dry with all the echoes of the night
And so I'm home alone, I wash my head and hold on tight
If you speak the right words, if you speak the right words
They will hear what you say, they will hear what you say
They will take your attention, just take your attention
And then turn away, and then turn away

Going down town tonight, going down town tonight
Going down town tonight, going down town tonight
Going down town tonight, going down town tonight
Going down town tonight, going down town tonight
Going down town tonight, going down town tonight
