The Pet Shop Boys produced this, the title song from the hugely successful 1993 movie. Neil sings backup to Boy George's lead vocal; Neil and Chris also play all of the keyboards on the track. In fact, Neil spent two days trying to get the right combination of keyboard sounds for the lead melody line. It proved a hit in both the U.K. and the U.S.—in fact, a bigger hit in the States than in Britain, becoming George's biggest solo success in America, reaching #15. It's also the most successful PSB production on the U.S.charts for another artist.
