but don't give away too much
Someone'll need your golden touch
Despite paying Nash so many compliments, the pair broke up shortly after the song was recorded. However, she has since revealed that she is still hugely flattered whenever she hears it:
Johnny and I have been friends for years. He was one of the first people I met when I came to London. The song is about people saying they liked me then slagging me off behind my back. That happened a lot and he didn't like it so wrote the song about it.
It’s amazing that such a big song is about me. It's just nice that someone you really care about writes something like that about you.
