Williams wrote this song with Stephen Duffy after splitting with his long-term collaborator, Guy Chambers. Duffy was a founding member of Duran Duran but left before the British synth-pop band found success with "Girls On Film
" in July 1981. He later founded the critically acclaimed folk outfit The Lilac Time prior to working with Williams on Intensive Care
. Speaking about his time spent writing with Williams, Duffy said
: "When you work with someone as big as Rob the music can be seen as secondary to the whole hoopla, but I'm very proud of that album – we came up with some absolutely bonkers songs and it went to #1."
