Songfacts®:

  • "You" was the B-side of O'Sullivan's debut single, "Disappear"; CBS would have done better to make it the A-side, although that is less a compliment than a retrospective suggestion for damage limitation.

    Having said that, it was considered sufficiently credible to be recorded shortly by The Tremeloes as an album track, although neither of these instantly forgettable ditties gave any indication of the talent that was soon to develop as O'Sullivan honed his songwriting craft. >>
