Bryan Ferry said in the April 2007 Q Magazine that this is the track he is most proud of writing. He explains, "I had an artist friend who lent me a remote carriage up in Derbyshire. This came out of that trip. I remember getting into my Renault 4, loading up a cassette player, keyboards and pads of paper and pens, and driving up there with the express purpose of writing some songs. Life was so much simpler in 1973."

Kris from Auckland, New Zealandreminded me of what lynard skynard would look like if the guest starred on star trek or blakes 7. first version of this song i heard was by Fields of the Nephilim, and because the lyrics are not so easy to make out, thought the song was about a person that couldnt handle the fact his wife was dead, and tried to dress her up daily and breathe life into her, in a frustrated romantic song as opposed to appear shocking..
Anthony from Sydney, AustraliaBrilliant song, one of my favourites along with 'A Song for Europe' and 'No Strange Delight'. Creepy sound, profound and brilliant lyrics. Roxy at their best.
Michael from Oxford, -No comments on this one? Yikes! This and "Editions of You" are probably my two favourite Roxy songs. The hard rock section of this track in particular knocks Black Sabbath into a cocked hat.
