The song is haunting, even eerie, having been composed primarily in a minor key with a strong orchestral presence. Brothers Barry and Robin Gibb who also wrote the song share lead vocals. There was also a promo video made for this song. The song remained a concert favourite for over 30 years, and Maurice Gibb often provided the audience with comedic antics by attempting many failed attempts to join Barry & Robin while singing this song. Evidence of this can be seen in a 1989 "One for all Tour" concert video where Maurice takes a camera from a film cameraman standing nearby and films Barry and Robin as they sing the song.
Singer Claudine Longet covered the song on her 1968 LP "Love Is Blue". American rock singer Ian Lloyd covered the song on his 1979 LP Goose Bumps. In 1979, the short-lived R&B/Disco group Moulin Rouge covered it as well as other early Bee Gees songs. The song was prominently featured in the Korean films Nowhere to Hide and Holiday.
