"Sofa Song" is a song by British rock band The Kooks and is featured on their debut album, Inside In/Inside Out. It was released October 17, 2005 as the second single from that album, charting at number 28 in the UK Singles Chart (see 2005 in British music).

Songwriting[edit]

Luke Pritchard stated in NME that Morrissey (of The Smiths) is one of his heroes and that "Sofa Song" was an attempt to write a song like Morrissey and Johnny Marr used to write during the Smiths' lifetime; a playful melody with a dark underbelly and lyrics.
