George Michael was 17 when he wrote this. He was taking the bus to his job as an usher at a cinema. That’s where the reference to “The silver screen” comes from in the first verse.

This was Epic Records first million selling single and it was George Michael’s biggest selling single in the UK, either as a solo artist or with Wham! selling 1,365,995 copies.
