Songfacts®:

  • Nicks (from the liner notes in TimeSpace): "This was a hard song to sing, but I had loved Missing You (co-written by Chas with John Waite), and I loved the words to Talk To Me. It took a long time to finish it though, because I couldn't quite get the right feeling on it until one night, Jim Keltner came in to do some drum overdubs; and then he stayed to be an audience to push me a little, to make me get a great vocal. So I had someone to sing to, and I got the vocal. I put some tambourine on it, and it was finished forevermore. That was one of my unforgettable moments." >>
