  • "Just Between You and Me" was written by vocalist Myles Goodwyn. Along with the album, it was also released as a single with "Big City Girls" on the B-side.
  • On August 1st, 1981, MTV began its first day of broadcasting. The video for this song played as the fourteenth video, making this the first Canadian artist played on MTV. They repeated this video at number 57, making this also the first video MTV ever repeated - what would soon become a tradition.
  • Through nine lineup changes, April Wine has been going continuously since 1969 up until the present day. The Nature of the Beast represents their commercial peak, selling over one million copies in the US. "Just Between You and Me" was also their greatest-selling single in the US, becoming the band's defining power ballad. However, their career has spawned 32 hits on the Canadian charts, 21 of those in the top 40.
    Although they've been nominated eleven times for a Juno award, April Wine hasn't won one yet. They have, however, been inducted into the Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame, the East Coast Music Hall of Fame, and the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, along with being presented with a CMW Lifetime Achievement Award in 2009.

    (Just between you and me) - when I hear this song it makes me want to pull out a bic lighter and sway back and forth. The guitar is super heavy on this jam. Classic April Wine for sure makes your blood run hot!
  • Brent from Denair, CaA very underrated band. A classic song and bank. Another great album titled Harder, Faster with my favorite song, Say Hello.
