  • In a 1981 interview with the BBC, Walsh explained: "I've spoken a lot about various non-musical things, and hype, and it's kind of funny how people will make something out of your songs, or your music, or you, that really isn't there, and 'You Never Know' is about word of mouth, gossip, backroom whispering. Non-musical things which I don't particularly endorse."
