  • Lyrics
  • In this song, Lulu wonders why the stormy weather always finds her peaceful heart. It was the fourth UK Top 10 for the singer, who had her own show on the BBC at the time.
  • Mickie Most was Lulu's producer at the time; he found this song for her when he solicited the songwriter Tony Hazzard, who wrote the Manfred Mann hit "Fox On The Run" (when Most produced The Yardbirds, he had them cover another hit Hazzard wrote for Manfred Mann: "Ha Ha Said the Clown").

    "I wrote, demoed, and presented it to him within a week," Hazzard said in his Songfacts interview. "He listened to half of it and said: 'It's a hit. We'll do it on Friday.'"
  • According to the song's writer Tony Hazzard, John Paul Jones and Jimmy Page played on this track. Both musicians did a lot of session work for Mickie Most before forming Led Zeppelin.
