This became a UK #1 hit in 2006 when it was remixed by DJ Meck (Craig Dimech), who found a vinyl copy of Sayer's original in a Los Angeles record store and decided to turn it into a dance mix. DJs like Fatboy Slim started playing the track, unaware that it was a Sayer song.
After a sting of hits in the '70s and '80s, Sayer faced bankruptcy when his albums stopped selling and he emigrated to Australia. This helped revive his career.
Sayer gave his blessing for the remix. In the London Times, February 13, 2006, he said: "He's changed it completely, yet kept all of its integrity. They said I'd be the kiss of death. All those DJs wouldn't touch the thing with a barge pole."
