    Written by Gordon & David Hughes and features the genius of my late brother David as a keyboard player MD. all the instrumentation apart from the guitar track and vocals was recorded into an early version of Cubase Score in 1997 on a lap top from his hospital bed using an XP80 keyboard and without any playback/mix . Gordon then took the keyboard ,bass and drum track and added guitar and vocals and mixed and produced to DAT it in my home based studio. Piano tracks were added by Kenny Duncan. This proved to be the last recording or project done by David before his untimely death. The song was used in europe to launch Dailies a new type of contact lens and it was also used for radio and TV ads with voice overs added. A vocal free version of the song also exists with only the chorus having vocals and this being used for different TV and radio ads. The recording process and method was at the time quite revolutionary. The song is still used by me in live shows today with slightly changed wording
