The Family Stand were unable to break into the US mainstream but they had significant international success with this song, which cracked the UK's Top 10. Songfacts asked The Family Stand's Peter Lord
why this song was so successful over the pond: "I have no idea why the UK audience loved it... The Jazzy B remix? The fact that it was a very different and poignant song within the grooving beat. They got a fair chance to hear it. It went to #3 on the urban charts in America. The executive decision made was NOT to cross it over to the pop charts in America."
