  • Steve from Torrance, CaThis song appeared, uncredited, along with "Take the Long Way Home" (also from the "Breakfast in America" album) in the 1984 Richard Lester-directed film, "Finders Keepers". The movie starred Michael O'Keefe ("Caddychack") and Lou Gossett Jr.
  • Ben from Chelsea, MeThe outro to this song was my favorite part. Not a bad song, but not as good as Casual Conversations or Goodbye Stranger.
