  • Lyrics
  • This was originally titled "Crash And Burn." The name was changed for its single release after the Columbia Shuttle disaster.
  • James Bourne recalls in 1000 UK #1 Hits by Jon Kutner and Spencer Leigh: "I remember we sat down for a writing session and Charlie was talking about being blown out by a girl. He said 'I crashed and burned' which was something I had never heard before. Then we tied it in with a song we already had about a girl who was so fit and she knew it and we renamed it 'You Said No.'" >>
