Lyrics
Counterfeit, counterfeit
That's what you're, shouting at me
I could run but I'd sooner have this
And I make her bleed
Liquid blood stain from your finger
Say what do you see?
Remind you that whatever you get is
What you want it to be

You get a feeling, that's what you choose
And I was told there was not a minute to lose
So if you're waiting, jump out your skin
To find a cure for whatever state your in
I tell my good friends 'get out the way' of all the lightning hitting the trees today
We get a thrill from clapping our hands
We find the nearest girl and ask her to dance

Oh, I put on my shoes and I'm ready for the weekend
Oh, I put on my shoes and I'm ready for the weekend
Oh, I put on my shoes and I'm ready for the weekend
Oh, I put on my shoes and I'm ready for the weekend

Coming back coming back
To a place where, I never knew
Pushing knobs, pushing faders,
But I, don't know what they do
This reflection in my mirror, reminds me of you
When I tilt it towards the sunlight, you fall out of view

You get a feeling, that's what you choose
And I was told there was not a minute to lose
So if you're waiting, jump out your skin
To find a cure for whatever state your in
I tell my good friends 'get out the way' of all the lightning hitting the trees today?
We get a thrill from clapping our hands
We find the nearest girl and ask her to dance

Oh, I put on my shoes and I'm ready for the weekend
Oh, I put on my shoes and I'm ready for the weekend
Oh, I put on my shoes and I'm ready for the weekend
Oh, I put on my shoes and I'm ready for the weekend

Background

The song features guest vocals by British singer Mary Pearce, who previously worked as a backup vocalist for Beverley Knight, Lionel Richie and Chaka Khan.[1][2] Remixes by High Contrast, Fake Blood and Dave Spoon were also announced.[2] It made its world debut on 12 June 2009 with Pete Tong on BBC Radio 1.[3] On 13 July 2009 it was featured as the Song of the Day on Popjustice.[4] Harris performed the song at the iTunes Festival '09 on 18 July 2009 in London.[5] It debuted on the UK Singles Chart at number three on 16 August 2009.

During an interview for The Sun on 10 April 2009, Harris commented on the song:[6]

"It's different to the first single. It's still happy, dancey, with more singing. The hook's sung by a woman called Mary Pearce, who's a diva. She's got this great big voice and it's like a nod to an old dance classic.

I love underground dance music but I also have an extreme love of commercial dance music. But only the good stuff."

Music video

The music video for the song was directed by Ben Ib[7] and premiered on the British channel T4 on 4 July 2009 at 11:00 am.[8] FHM model Lauren Pope makes an appearance in the video.[8] Several dancing females appear wearing red leotards to match Harris' magic portal, shirt and furniture. They next "change into blue and yellow zip-up bathing suits, expanding the palette and multiplying endlessly, just in time for the weekend."[9]

On 23 July 2009, it was reported that the video was removed from YouTube due to a copyright claim from another party. Harris stated that he was upset it had occurred and believed that the British Phonographic Industry had prompted the removal.[10]
