Paul from Chicago IllinoisThe song brought me out of deep inner BS and put a smile on me face. Can't forget the scene in White Teeth the Zadie Smith novel, made into a TV movie. Archie was standing at the bottom of the stairs and his Jamaican goddess beckons him.
Anthony Bravington from UkOther songs by Steve Harley, What about Sebastion?. That was surely the one which, though it wasn't a big success, got him noticed?
Hugh from Oxford, Oxfordshire, United KingdomI heard this song on the medical drama House, MD It was used during the scene where Greg (House) and Alvie play foosball. It was used during the football (soccer for all you yanks) scenes in the Full Monty.
Marc from Liverpool, United KingdomI met him once in a bar in Liverpool, he is a charming man and spent ther whole afternoon chatting and drinking with a couple of us, a little known fact is that steve has polio and as a youngster wore a caliper on his leg.
Terry from Nyc, NyThis track was also prominently featured in the cult film Velvet Goldmine, about the rise and fall of the 1970's decadent glam rock era. The film's main character Brian Slade, was based on David Bowie's Ziggy Stardust character. Bowie disapproved of the film , so a variety of other glam era and glam-influenced music was used instead.
Capone from Glasgow, United KingdomThe song has been reissued twice - a 1992 release reached Number 46; and a 1995 release reached Number 33 after being used in the Carlsberg TV advertisement.

Paul from Galway, IrelandGreat song. An oldie, but a goodie.
Brian from Nr Woodstock, Oxon., EnglandThere's a cracking acoustic version of Make Me Smile (Come Up And See Me) by Steve Harley on an album called "Stripped To The Bare Bones".

Dean from Pune, IndiaThe song has been covered more than 100 times in seven languages and has been featured in the movie THE FULL MONTY. Steve Harley rocks!!!!
The bedrock of David Guetta's Nicki Minaj-featuring single "Hey Mama" is a sample of "Rosie," a 1940s prison recording from folk archivist Alan Lomax that songwriter Esther Dean first showed the French DJ on YouTube.
