Songwriter Roy Wood had already played and recorded with other bands prior to the Move's debut, but this single was the first indication that Wood was not a run-of-the-mill pop songwriter and had an eccentric streak all his own. What's remarkable is that on this maiden outing, that talent was fully formed, with no run-up to the idiosyncratic vision.
What made it stand out most from other singles of the time were the lyrics, with no hints of romance, but a kind of whistling-in-the-dark announcement of the coming of a night of undefined terror. The Move's characteristically strident vocal harmonies made their entry in the latter part of the verse, coming to a stop at a particularly dramatic point for emphasis. A multi-sectioned bridge was the creepiest part of the song, with warnings of shadows dancing on the bedroom wall that evoked childhood fears of nightmares, the group employing some spooky half chants-half harmonies near the bridge's end.
