  • 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.
