This was David Cassidy's (of the Partridge Family) second and final UK #1. His teen-based popularity began to fade away after this single. Cassidy's solo career was much more successful in the UK than back at home.

This was written by Terry Dempsey, who wrote several international hits including "Love Is A Beautiful Song" by Dave Mills and "Le Mal Aimé" by Claude François. Dempsey later worked as a producer for film and television.
The song is about a summer romance that has ended, leaving Cassidy lonely and empty, left to chase after rainbows he may never find again.
The actor Jack Cassidy was the father of David Cassidy by his first wife, actress Evelyn Ward. He and his second wife, singer and actress Shirley Jones, had three sons: singer/actor Shaun Cassidy and actors Patrick and Ryan Cassidy.
