This song was written by the British songwriters Geoff Stephens and Tony Macaulay and was also produced by the latter. Macaulay also penned David Soul's previous hits, "Don't Give Up On Us
" and "Going In With My Eyes Open." Soul recalled in 1000 UK #1 Hits
by Jon Kutner and Spencer Leigh: "It was an excellent song. I always enjoyed working with Tony Macaulay and I wish we had continued together. 'Silver Lady' is a brilliant song, very well written, like a standard."
