Songfacts®:

  • This was the first single from Petula Clark's album Lost in You, which was released when she was 80 years old. It was written by her producer John Williams along with the songwriters Sarah Naghshineh and Paul Visser. The song uses computer commands as metaphor for devotion.
  • When we spoke with Petula Clark, she told us that this was her favorite song on the album. "I just loved it from the first time I heard the demo," she said. "And it was sung by a girl who sang it very well, indeed. I thought, 'Uh oh. What am I going to do with this?' [Laughing] I think the production is interesting. The first mix was actually done in Paris and they did a very good job on it, and it was slightly remixed in England. It's got something a bit mysterious about it, and I like that."
