Marty about 'You'll Never Be So Wrong'

After Chequered love had been accepted by Mickie he said: "Right, we need a B-side, you'd better go and write one." We then wrote 'You'll Never Be So Wrong' and it came in about an hour and a half, so we recorded it and it turned out pretty good. We took the track to Mickie and after he'd listened to it a couple of times he said it was too good to be a B-side and would like to have a crack at it with Hot Chocolate. He did a fabulous jobn with the song and Errol sang it beautifully. We also thought that Kim did a pretty nifty job on the old vocals. We thought it was the best track she'd ever sung. (1)

Marty Wilde: This song remains one of my clearest and most vivid songwriting memories. As I wrote the lyrics, I seemed to picture the entire scenario in my head - just as if I had been watching a film. The location I saw as France, and I can still visualise the startled look on the waiter's face as the tearful girl rushed past him out of the cafe and back to her small flat. The song was - and still is - one of my favourites. I hope you like it too. (2)
