This was the first song that Tanita Tikaram
wrote for Ancient Heart.
Speaking with Q
magazine in 1990, she explained it's about a club in her hometown of Basingstoke "called Marline's." She added: "It was under the car park. It was a pick-up joint basically. You went there if you were really desperate - except they never let any of us college girls in, which was another reason for writing about it."
