This was the opening track on the 'Poem' album and my first single. At the time I recall folks raving about the opening drum fill. I'm still not quite sure what to make of that.
The song was an exercise in writing for a band, any band - rather than something I'd play. However producer Peter Dawkins felt it was somewhat more commercial than most of the material I had at the time and would help balance the album.
As a single it charted in Queensland and in my home state of Werstern Australia - entering the Go-Set National Top 40 charts (attributed to Ross Egan) at number 38 before vanishing the following week. But hey - I'd made the top 40!!
