BackgroundEdit

This was written in 1983, and is a self-proclaimed gay disco song: "When we first started writing together Chris was very keen that we should write sleazy songs - it had never occurred to me before. It's about standing at a corner of a nightclub and everyone's leaving and you've seen someone you fancy, and who's going to make the first approach?" It was recorded with Blue Weaver, who was a regular keyboardist for the Bee Gees.

Trivia Edit

  • The trombone on this was played by Chris, under duress.
