Another track from Results, Chris is again credited with Fairlight programming, and both he and Neil perform on keyboards. This, incidentally, is one of the most famous songs written by singer-songwriter Tanita Tikaram, a fascinating artist of truly multinational heritage (German-born of mixed Indian, Fijian, and Malaysian ancestry, raised from the age of twelve in the U.K., and now U.S.-based). The "rap" intro, however, is derived from the song "Liza with a Z," written especially for Liza by the songwriting team of John Kander and Fred Ebb, who were also responsible for providing her with her greatest stage and film triumph: the musical Cabaret.
