Nick Lowe wrote this song along with Ian Gomm when they were band mates back in the early to mid 1970’s. When Lowe signed with Columbia Records. The record company heard a demo of the song and asked Lowe to re-record it. Lowe grudgingly recorded it in 1979 backed by his band “Rockpile”, never thinking it would do anything. It became Lowe’s highest charting single. A cover of “Cruel to be Kind”.
