Jon Fratelli spoke to The Sunday Mail May 4, 2008 about this piano-driven album closer: "The biggest departure from the last album yet the one everyone is raving about on our website. I wrote it and thought it wasn't for us, even though I thought it was f--king good."
Jon Fratelli divulged in an interview with the Daily Mail that his bandmates had to convince him to put this on the album. He added: "If another group had done it, I'd have been jealous."
Until December 5, 1998, a song had to be issued as a single to make the Hot 100. Aaliyah's "Try Again" was the first tune to top the chart based on airplay alone, without any sales figures being included.
"Islands in the Stream" was originally written by The Bee Gees as an R&B song. It was originally written by the brothers for Marvin Gaye, however it was recorded instead as a duet by Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton with the Gibb Brothers also contributing vocals.
