  • Introducing this uptempo number to a concert audience at the Theatre Royal, Nottingham on August 8, 1981, the lady herself said:
    "This is a song from my second album...and it's dedicated to some of you".

    The persons - or more likely person - to whom it is dedicated, was not named for a very obvious reason. This is not her answer to Tom Robinson's "Grey Cortina" but a rather obvious non-tribute to a failed suitor, or to someone else who tried to impress her, but didn't.
  • "Sportscar" is the title track of her second album, and was co-written with her regular collaborator Mike Paxman. Like the rest of the album it was recorded at The Manor, Oxford, and produced by Paul Muggleton with both Tzuke and Paxman. >>
