"It was the first time I’d written such simple words. They were inspired by my wife Angie. We were away a lot on tour, and I wasn’t seeing her an awful lot, as happens with bands in the early days. So I thought of her. It was such a simple sentiment, unlike, you know, all our other words at the time. And so you write it from the heart, quickly.'' - Mike Rutherford
''Until ''Follow You Follow Me'', our audience was very strongly male. After it, all the guys were able to say to their girlfriends: ‘Here’s that song you like.’ So they’d come along to gigs and of course they’d enjoy the whole evening. It changed our audience ratio and we got more women after that.'' - Tony Banks
