Rick's Perspective
This song was one of the few written as a one off and not intended for any album. I was asked to write the music for a television special of the same name. The producers of the programme hated it and never used it, and never paid me! I therefore released it as a single and put it on the Silent Nights album.
Wakey's Verdict
Potentially the best single I made.
Little Known Trivia
The single got loads of airplay but the pressing plant where it was being made went on strike and although the shops were ordering it in shed loads, there were none to be had and so the airplay stopped as people couldn't buy it.
