Songfacts®:

  • This was used by David Schwimmer for the soundtrack of his directorial debut, Run, Fat Boy, Run. Baxter told the Daily Mail March 21, 2008 how this happened: "It turns out that David had bought my first album, and he had been following my career ever since. He had downloaded the song when I put a live version out on the internet. And from there, it made its way into the film and stayed there. David has since come along to some gigs and we've got to know each other. It's weird, because a lot of people still know him as this Friends' character (Ross), but I never really watched Friends, I know him more from the film."
  • In 2008 this song was covered by Boyzone for the Christmas singles market.
