Along with 'West End Girls', This song was released originally with Bobby Orlando. In America and Belgium, it was released as it's own single as the a-side, but in all other countries it was the b-side to 'West End Girls'.
The music for this song was originally culled from an unused backing track called 'Rock Me' that Bobby O was working on with Divine, another one of his artists. The lyrics are about paranoia, according to Neil: 'The idea of being chased by someone - the mafia are after you, like you're the patsy or something - and at the same time you're looking for your love.'
- The original line for the bridge in the 1986 version was "...you're so extreme / your silk-screened life shot through with bullets...' but was changed because this was considered too 'over the top'
- The version heard on 'Actually' is actually the 12" remix by Julian Mendelsohn. During promotion for 'Actually', it was thought that 'One More Chance' would be a single. The Mendelsohn 7" remained unreleased until the 'Further Listening' release of Actually in 2001.
