    One of my favourite Leo Sayer singles!
    And I’m very glad to finally have the 12″ version on lossless!
    Thank you Paul!
    Another under-performing single I always thought, especially after his Grammy winning You Make Me Feel Like Dancing and fellow chart-topping When I Need You.
    correct me if I’m wrong, but I recall reading Leo wrote this in a hotel room after the 1977 Grammys.

    You’re welcome Ric. I am not sure of the writing process but I do know that he co-wrote the song with Tom Snow who as you know has also written some ONJ songs 🙂
