"Room on the 3rd Floor" is a song recorded by English pop rock band McFly. It was released on 15 November 2004 as the fourth and final single from their debut studio album of the same name (2004). The song debuted at number five in the UK Singles Chart. The song also appears as a B-side for the band's next single, "All About You/You've Got a Friend".

Background[edit]

"Room on the 3rd Floor" was written by band members Tom Fletcher and Danny Jones. The song is less upbeat and uptempo than their previous singles. It was written during Fletcher and Jones' two-month stay at the InterContinental London (Room 363), which they found a little tedious; they began listening in to arguments in the neighbouring rooms, and wrote about a rather annoying room-service maid, all of which are mentioned on the track.

Music video[edit]

The video depicts the band as small plastic models (based on Tamiya models). During the shoot, the band were painted blue ("Like a smurf"- Danny) and then digitally enhanced to make them look like plastic. McFly can be seen in full colour playing on the packaging box; the McFly Set with Roadie and Fan is a nod to their then upcoming tour.[1]
