''I do remember it being written very quickly. A lot of the best ones always do come out like that you know - and I remember it was after getting back together with an old girlfriend - the title scratched down on a bit of paper and that really was - two or three days later I thought, "That's a good title". I often use titles actually, as a starting point, and one of the things about these big power ballads, there's some cracking titles in there. I think the Eighties were very good at titles! "I just died in your arms" - love it or hate it, it's one of those, it's a title you're gonna go, "Well, what the fuck's this all about?" - Nick Van Eede
''I have to say that it was a very exciting moment, once we'd finally mixed it. There were people... you know those old stories you hear when Sting popped in to Dire Straits' studio and they sang MTV or something like that - well people were coming in to our room and going, "What is this? Who are you? Who are you guys - Cutting who?" So the buzz was phenomenal. I did really think, 'My God, if we can get lucky, we've got the biggest chance I'll ever have in my life.'' - Nick Van Eede
