  • Lyrics
  • 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." >>
