This song was written by Austrian composer and producer Peter Wolf together with his wife Ina. Peter Wolf (not the former singer of the J. Geils Band) was born in Vienna, Austria. He has had multiple Grammy nominations and has received his birthplace's highest honor, "the Great Honor Cross of the Republic of Austria for Art and Culture."
The song was named after the wife at the time of Starship's vocalist Mickey Thomas, who sang lead on the track. Thomas also sang on the Elvin Bishop Group's 1979 chart hit "Fooled Around And Fell In Love."
The video features Mickey Thomas and actress Rebecca de Mornay. The storyline is about a farm devastated by a tornado.

Love this song
- Beck, Boca Raton, FL
Really LOVE the song; just sometimes can't get over the "slapback" echo on the drums IMHO, maybe mixed a little too heavy ??
- Joe, Grants Pass, OR
Beautiful, powerful and haunting. Always seems like a dirge to me, for the demise of love and a musical finger pointed at the one who killed it.

Based on the date of its release, the song may refer to Sarah Jane Smith, played by Lis Sladen, who had recently resigned her role on TV's Doctor Who. References to time, fire and ice, etc. seem to be clues.

I love this song AND the video. It's so sweet. And I couldn't quite tell if that was Rebecca de mornay in the video until someone previously mentioned her in one of the comments.

Peter Wolf also played keyboards on Sheik Yerbouti and Joe's Garage.

Ina Wolf (Former Wife) of Peter Wolf teamed up in 1987 and formed the Group "Vienna" made the album called "Guess What?" and delivered the most heart felt album I ever heard. Track 10 on the CD is called "July" you have got to hear her beautiful voice...It gives you the goosebumps all over..
- Jayson, Wilkes-Barre, United States
Very haunting, beautiful video, about love lost....

Doubt led to drive for Francis, who still isn't sure why one of Status Quo's biggest hits is so beloved.

"Great songwriters don't necessarily have hit songs," says Chris. He's written a bunch, but his fans are more interested in the intricate jams.
Susanna Hoffs - "Eternal Flame"Susanna Hoffs - "Eternal Flame"
The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
