Charted: 7


  • Richard commented on this song to the Mail on Sunday November 2, 2008: "It was released at a time when I was getting over Elvis and trying to find my own voice, rather than trying to sound like him. He had this fabulous, gentle, way of singing - a 'no projection' voice - and I had a lot of success with it. It's the same style I used on 'I'm Looking Out The Window' and even 'Miss You Nights' many years later."
  • This song was used as the closing theme to Cliff Richard's BBC TV series.
