When the Sun Goes Down (song) is a song by Selena Gomez & the Scene which appears as the seventh track on the When the Sun Goes Down album.

Background

Selena explained to Billboard magazine the record was named after it, “because it goes perfectly with describing the whole album and the album artwork.”

Joey Clement, who is the bassist of The Scene as well as a member of the American band Midwest Kings, gave the song to Selena. Said the Wizards of Waverly Place star to Billboard magazine: “It’s really special to my bass player, Joey, who wrote it. And I got to rewrite the bridge of it as well. It felt like we got to do that as a band.”

The song was produced by Stefan Abingdon of UK comedy group The Midnight Beast. They are most famous for their YouTube cover-parody of Kesha’s “TiK ToK,"which reached #4 on the Australian singles chart. This was the first song that Abingdon produced for another act.

Lyrics

Been a long day, waiting for the night to come
I check my Iphone,
Let me see what’s going on, going on, going on
Help me DJ, play my favorite song,
Make the speakers shake, speakers shake
Now everybody wants to sing along, sing along,

When the night is here
The only thing on my mind is having a good time when the moon appears
You can always hear us say

[Chorus:]
The party doesn’t start 'til the sun goes down
That’s when everything starts moving,
Everybody out when the sun goes down
Ahh,ahh,ahh
The music isn’t on till it’s way too loud,
That’s when everyone starts dancing
Everybody shout when the sun goes down
When the sun goes down
When the sun goes down
When the sun goes down
Oh oh oh oh yeah

Pushing my hands up,
I’m feeling good now
On the dance floor,
We can turn it inside out, inside out

When the night is here,
The only thing on my mind is having good time with my friends
That’s real, you can always hear us say

[Chorus:]
The party doesn’t start 'til the sun goes down
That’s when everything starts moving,
Everybody out when the sun goes down
Ahh,ahh,ahh
The music isn’t on till it’s way too loud,
That’s when everyone starts dancing
Everybody shout when the sun goes down
When the sun goes down
When the sun goes down
When the sun goes down
Oh oh oh oh yeah

Down,down,down
The sun is going down, down,down
When the moon appears, you can always hear us say
When the stars come out, you can always here us say

[Chorus:]
The party doesn’t start 'til the sun goes down
That’s when everything starts moving,
Everybody out when the sun goes down
Ahh,ahh,ahh
The music isn’t on till it’s way too loud,
That’s when everyone starts dancing
Everybody shout when the sun goes down
When the sun goes down
When the sun goes down
When the sun goes down
Oh oh oh yeah
