"Tied Up" was one of two new songs recorded for the 1982 double platinum greatest hits package titled Olivia's Greatest Hits Vol. 2. The song was the second single released from the album following "Heart Attack" (US #3), the other new track recorded for the package. "Tied Up" did not do quite as well as "Heart Attack", reaching #38 on the US Billboard singles chart. The song also features Tom Scott on horns who also was the opening act for Olivia's 1982 "Physical" World Tour.

The song was recorded by Stevie Nicks for her album Mirror, Mirror but the album was pulled and has never been released.
