Smithereens guitarist and singer Pat DiNizio wrote this as the theme song for the motion picture Say Anything, but DiNizio ultimately withheld the song from the project after he and the film's producer disagreed on making certain changes to the song. (thanks, Sam - Lincoln, NE)

Actually, it's Maria Vidal singing the background vocals on this song. Interesting fact: Madonna was the originally the 1st choice to do the background vocals, but after she didn't show up for the session, the band picked Maria(who nailed the song in ONE take)!

Glad Pat held out. Turned out to be a great song, just like it is! Saw them in Clemson back in 1990 I think. Great show! Wish they would come back down south.
