Thirsty Work is the twenty-first studio album by English Rock band Status Quo. It yielded three hit singles, "I Didn't Mean It" (No. 21), "Sherri Don't Fail Me Now" (No. 38), and the uncharacteristic ballad "Restless" (No. 39). "Sorry" had originally been recorded by Demis Roussos and released on his 1980 album Man of the World, with Francis Rossi and Bernie Frost on all instruments and backing vocals.
