|Eurythmics singles chronology|
The single achieved little commercial success, peaking at #63 (for two weeks) in the UK.
The single was accompanied by a music video, a medium for which Eurythmics would later receive notable acclaim. To date, the video remains commercially unavailable, though it is available on YouTube. Stills from it were used for the sleeve art of the In The Garden album, and footage from it can also be seen during the song "Jennifer" on the Sweet Dreams video album.
The sleeve design of the single features an eerie picture of vocalist Annie Lennox made up to look like a gargoyle.
"Never Gonna Cry Again" contains a flute solo performed by Lennox, one of the few times that she was to use the instrument in her pop career despite having studied it at the prestigious Royal College of Music in London in the 1970s.
The single's B-side, "Le Sinistre", is an experimental piece, featuring musical arrangements similar to those used in horror film scores.
