  • Lyrics
  • This song is about the euphoria of falling in love.
  • This was The Stone Roses first UK Top 40 hit, reaching #36 in July 1989. A reissue in March 1990 improved by 2 places.
  • This was written in 1987. Ian Brown wrote the lyrics for the verses, while John Squire was responsible for the lyrics for the chorus.
  • Two music videos were produced. One showed the band recording in a studio in January 1989 and the other one is taken from the Stone Roses' gig at Blackpool Empress Ballroom on August 12 1989. >>
