Slade re-recorded the song in swing-style for the b-side of the single "Do You Believe in Miracles?", released in 1985. This version was apparently suggested by Frank Sinatra and was recorded with the Monty Babson Big Band. Holder did his vocal in one take after an evening in the pub. The single was certified UK Gold by BPI in January 1984. In Sweden, the song topped the chart and was awarded in 1984 with a Swedish Platinum Award for sales in excess of 50,000. (en)
