"Farfisa Beat" was released as a single in Denmark and Germany in 1980, and Switzerland in 1981. The song is from Squeeze's third album, Argybargy. Farfisa refers to the manufacturer of the electronic organ that gives this song its distinct sound.

The band's opinion of the song was not high. Glenn Tilbrook said that he was pleased with the guitar riff, but can't disagree that it was a filler track.[1] Chris Difford said that "the song's crap".[2]
