The Paul Young version, from the album No Parlezis stylistically notable for its use of fretless bassplayed by Pino Palladino. Though a major UK hit that broke Young as a star, the song fared less well on Wherever I Lay My Hat (Thats My Home) - Various - Blue Eyed Soul Billboard Hotwhere it peaked at No. According to Young, when he was making the album No Parlezthe label sent him a number of songs that he thought were too complex.
He said: "I just want a simple three-chord trick with a melody. He slowed Chain Reaction - John Farnham - Chain Reaction song down, and added more melancholy to the vocal. The song was produced by Laurie Lathamwho asked for an intro for the song, and Palladino quoted the bassoon melody at the opening of Stravinsky 's The Rite of Spring for the opening bass line. Palladino however thought that the bass line in the recording was too loud and out of tune.
In a retrospective review, AllMusic journalist Dave Thompson wrote that Young's version of the song "left mouths hanging open in awe" and described it as "a beautifully impassioned take on what was, in all fairness, never one of Marvin Gaye's greatest performances.
