The Big Pink singles chronology

"Dominos" is the first single from The Big Pink's debut album A Brief History of Love. "Dominos" was released as a digital download and on 7" vinyl on September 7, 2009, a week before the release of the album. The song was co-produced by the band and record producer Paul Epworth, and mixed by Rich Costey (who also produced the album).[1] In their native United Kingdom, the song peaked on the UK Singles Chart at #27[2] and #10 on the Irish Singles Chart in the Republic of Ireland.[3] The single's B-side, "She's No Sense", features vocals from Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine.[4]

"Dominos" is The Big Pink's fourth single, three having been released before their debut album throughout 2008 and 2009. The song was remixed by Switch and made available as a free digital download track on the band's website on 23 October 2009.[5] "Dominos" has also been featured in Xbox 360 television advertisements in the United Kingdom. In the United States, the song was used in a promo spot for Skins series 3 premiere on BBC America. The song was featured in the episode "Let The Games Begin" of 90210.[6]

On Pitchfork Media's end-of-the-year Top 100 Tracks of 2009 list, "Dominos" was voted in at #18.[7] On 24 February 2010, "Dominos" won Best Track of the Year at the NME Awards.[8] In October 2011, NME placed it at number 72 on its list "150 Best Tracks of the Past 15 Years".[9]

The song is heavily sampled on Nicki Minaj's track "Girls Fall Like Dominoes" on her debut album Pink Friday.
