Written by Maria McKee about her relationship with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers keyboard player Benmont Tench and produced by the Eurythmics' David A. Stewart, this was former Undertones singer Feargal Sharkey's third solo single. A number one single in the United Kingdom for two weeks in November 1985, it fared less well in the US, peaking at #74 on the Billboard Hot 100. Background vocals on the song's choruses were sung by Boy George.
Sharkey followed up the single with Tench-written "You Little Thief", this time about Tench's relationship with McKee. Sharkey placed them next to each other on his debut album.
In 2007, McKee released her own recording of the track on her album Late December.
