  • From, "This is another Dial-A-Song recording — a cover of the Unit 4+2's UK hit from the 60s. This was cooked up at the behest of producer Clive Langer, who is a big fan of the song, as a possible holiday release in the UK but missed the deadlines and then slipped off the radar."
  • The recording dates back to 1990 or possibly 1989, during Langer's work with the band for Flood.
  • This song was written by Tommy Moeller and Brian Parker of Unit 4+2. The lyrics of the TMBG cover vary slightly from the 1965 original, notably substituting "mountains crumble" for "mountains tumble".
