  • Though never released as a single in the United States, the song was a #1 hit in the United Kingdom and in Australia. In Britain the sales were boosted by another previously unavailable track on the B-side: a French language version of "Sunday Girl."
  • The song was covered in 2013 by the band She & Him on the album Volume 3.

  • Zabadak from London, EnglandVery hard to find either the French or English language versions on CD, except the latter on Parallel Lines - most compilations seem to combine the two...
  • Lawrence from Saranac Lake, NyDefinately a great song. Played this a lot during the summer of '79.
