Although appearing for the first time init was actually written years earlier by the band's songwriter and lead singer Ric Ocasek. The song became one of the Cars' most popular songs peaking at No. With the track " Cruiser " as its b-side, it hit No. The song is primarily reliant on dance-pop as its main genre, with pop rock elements audible. Ocasek referred to the song as "the big return to pop" after the more art rock style of the preceding album, Panorama.
Drummer David Robinson said at first he did not even want to record the song, as it was "kicking around for years. It never sounded good. We recorded it a couple of times A Dream Away - The Cars - Shake It Up the studio and dumped it, Chimney Sweeps - Devil Girl we were going to try it one more time, and I was fighting everybody.
So we thought, let's start all over again, like we've never even heard it—completely change every part—and we did. Then, when it was through and all put back together, it was like A Dream Away - The Cars - Shake It Up brand-new song. Guitarist Elliot Easton said he wanted his solo to sound like "two guys trading off".
He plays first a Fender Telecaster in a style skewing "country", then midway through the solo switches to a Gibson Crank to sound more rock. The song references dance moves, hair styles and having fun. However, bassist Benjamin Orr has stated the song tells the story of how important it is to make a mark in life, to "let them know what you really mean".
