The sleeve notes of the group's 1996 rarities album Saturnine Martial and Lunatic
state that this was an homage to the style and work of British singer-songwriter Robert Wyatt. Tears for Fears' Roland Orzabal originally planned to offer the song to Wyatt before the band recorded it themselves. Wyatt's "Sea Song" was covered by the group as the B-side to this single in the UK.
