The composers, Simon May, Stewart James and Bradley James each received an Ivor Novello Award for the composition.

I have enjoyed working on my first album with Mike [Batt] and I am very happy with our choice of tracks.Meanwhile, Down Under, a soap had just started airing, one that would go on to dominate our charts during the final few years of this decade. Berry’s studio recording of the former was one of three official BBC singles tied in with ‘EastEnders’ during 1986; in the original press release the BBC confidently predicted that “with full BBC TV and radio support this is definitely a top ten hit.
