"José" in this song, pronounced Joe-Say, is a girl. Miles sings from the perspective of a guy trying to assuage any doubts about their evening together - who cares where this is going when he can count the stars in her eyes?
It was the second release by John Miles as a solo artist (following "Why Don't You Love Me
") and his first on the Decca label. Written by Jonathan King and backed by his own composition "You Make It So Hard," it was released as a promo on July 9, 1971.
