Songfacts®:

  • Little is known about this song, probably by design. In his memoir Never Surrender..., frontman Biff Byford would say only that it was about a girlfriend who died from a brain tumor, and that initially her name was misspelt Suzy by the record company. In 1980, it was released as a single on the Carrere label in both 7-inch and 12-inch formats backed by a live version of "Judgement Day."
  • The eighth and penultimate track on the Wheels Of Steel album, this group composition runs to 4 minutes 34 seconds. >>
