Fun Some NightsNew York band Fun. recently sat down with Billboard.com to talk about the album, Some Nights. Singer Nate Reuss says, “I think we were somewhere in Scotland, touring, and I told the guys, ‘Hey, check it out. I want to call the album Some Nights. I had no idea where that came from, but they were like, ‘That is a fantastic name for an album!’ So I had to start figuring out what that meant for me and write a song about it.” “Some Nights” is also a song off the record and Reuss says it was inspired by Paul Simon, “I was thinking about Graceland, the Paul Simon album, for some reason. I had the chorus for the song and I didn’t know what I was going to do with the verse, and I remember writing down, ‘This will be the best song you’ve ever written’ and was like, ‘Alright. I guess I kind of have to challenge myself…’”

and yes, you can hear the inspiration of Paul Simon with the Cecilia guitar hook in the title track. .
