|Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark singles chronology|
The single peaked at number 50 on the UK Singles Chart. This version is slightly different from the original, adding the female singers to the beginning and editing out the lengthy introduction of the album version. It was edited by Pete Lewis. Like the previous single "Walking on the Milky Way", it was released on CD and cassette formats but not on 7" or 12" vinyl.
The poor performance of the single and its parent album prompted singer Andy McCluskey to disband the group. It would remain their final single for over a decade until the band's reunion.
