Released on 7 November 1994, the single climbed to number 26 in the UK Singles Chart.[2] Its entry into the Top 40 marked Bush's first appearance on Top of the Pops in eight years. The lyric is about the end of a love affair, with the narrator declaring that both life and love are sad, and deciding that for the "sake of love," the two must set each other free[citation needed].

"Eat the Music" also appears on the UK "And So Is Love" CD single, in the same version as on the 12-inch single featured on the U.S. CD and cassingle. Additionally, there is a third version, the so-called "Extended Mix" which appears on the European and Australian singles, and which is actually 12 seconds shorter than the LP mix.
