The song was written by British/Irish singer-songwriter Chris de Burgh and released in June 1986. It was the second single from the album ‘Into the Light’. On the TV program ‘This Is Your Life’, Chris said that the song was inspired by the memory of when he first saw Diane and how men often cannot even remember what their wives were wearing when they first met.
The song was a massive hit quickly becoming de Burgh's best-selling single and his signature song. It transformed him from a cult artist into a household name in many countries. It reached No. 1 in Canada, the UK, Ireland and No. 3 USA. .The song also propelled its parent album ‘Into The Light’ to No. 2 in the UK and success in other markets. The song was de Burgh's third UK hit single and the first to reach the top 40. The song tends to divide public opinion and it was voted the tenth most annoying song of all time in a poll commissioned by Dotmusic in 2000.
