“When the Sun Goes Down” is the second single from Sheffield band Arctic Monkeys, released on 16 November 2005. The song, about prostitution in the Neepsend district of Sheffield, was originally known as “Scummy” and followed debut single “I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor” to UK Number One. The track is featured on the band’s debut album, Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not, released the week after this single. Original reports suggested its name would be simply “Sun Goes Down”, but the full name was confirmed on the band’s website. The line, “and he told Roxanne to put on her red light,“ is a reference to The Police song, “Roxanne”. The cover image shows a street in Sheffield. Read on...
