Release DateEdit

  • September 1988

SummaryEdit

One of two b-sides to 'It's Alright'.

BackgroundEdit

It seems that Chris wrote the lyrics to this, as he is doing the singing on the song as well (although he sings through a vocoder). Neil: "The original idea for this song came because Chris said in an interview on TV that he liked following fashion and that he didn't like to stand out, he liked to be one of the crowd." Reportedly, everyone had to leave the studio while Chris laid down the vocal track. "...We came back and he played it to me - 'when I go fishing with my rod / I often get that urge…' - and we were rolling around the studio with laughter at the sheer moronicness of the words."
