The basis for this song is "Give It Up," a UK Top 5 hit for the Dutch duo The Goodmen. Mick Hucknall acknowledged The Goodmen in this song with the lyric, "Let's make amends like all goodmen should."
This is Simply Red's best selling single in the UK, with 783,000 copies sold. It's also their only single to top the British charts -both "Holding Back The Years" and "If You Don't Know Me By Now" topped the American charts but peaked at #2 in Britain.
