ABC's first single was a spare funk tune produced by Steve Brown in which Martin Fry contends that "tears are not enough" to prove that a girl's emotions are genuine. The song peaked at #19 on the UK singles chart, whilst in the US, it was released as the B-side of "Poison Arrow."
The version that can be heard on the Lexicon of Love album was re-recorded by the band and produced by Trevor Horn. It features lavish orchestration by Art Of Noise's Anne Dudley, one of several on the LP. According to Horn, they were her first ever string arrangements.
