Album: The Art of Falling Apart (1983)
Charted: 21

Songfacts®:

  • In a January 1983 interview with Melody Maker, Marc Almond said his mother didn't like this song. This is possibly because it was inspired by an argument he had with her at Christmas; David Ball was asked by interviewer Steve Sutherland if it had come as a shock to people who thought they knew what Soft Cell sounded like; he replied "I hope so!"
  • The second track on the album, "Where The Heart Is" runs to 4 minutes 34 seconds and was released as a single in both seven inch and twelve inch formats on November 26, 1982 backed by "It's A Mug's Game." >>
