Album: Manifesto (1979)
Charted: 4

Songfacts®:

  • This was the third single taken from British rock band Roxy Music's sixth studio album, Manifesto. The single release was a re-recorded version of the album track, and a 12" extended dance mix, (a relatively new format back in 1979) was also released. Frontman Bryan Ferry recalled to The Mail on Sunday June 28, 2009 that "after a short early career as an album track," this song "was reborn as a brilliant dance re-mix, anticipating a whole new world of music. It became a big hit as a single and in clubs."
  • This was the first record that Roxy Music made a specific promo video for.
  • By coincidence, at the same time this song was popular, the Swedish group Abba were also in the UK Top 10, with an unrelated song named "Angeleyes."
