This was the b-side to the second release of 'Opportunities (Let's Make Lots Of Money)'.
This song was written in Advision studios in London, and was a completely new work, which is to say they wrote it on the spot and it wasn't based on anything they had previously composed. "It's a 'why has everything gone wrong?' record, looking back, trying to pinpoint why the whole thing was screwed up. To be honest, it's a very minor work." It was intended to be remixed by Shep Pettibone, but in the end, his manager, Jane Brinton was the one that worked on it.
- Some recordings of this contain a mastering error near the end of the song, where the sound cuts out for a split second then returns.
