  • Lyrics
  • In this joyful ode to friends, the band reeled off the names of young couples in love that they knew. In an interview in Mojo magazine February 2008, the song's writer, Zombies bassist Chris White, recalled, "We sat around and came up with different friends at rehearsal to see if we could fit them all in."

    Sadly, most of the couples are not together any more and some have passed away. However, according to White, "Jim and Jean are still together. And Jim and Christine."
