Record label of Australian release:

British band Sniff ‘n’ the Tears is considered a one-hit wonder as Driver’s Seat was their only hit, except in the Netherlands, where they had a second hit.
According to singer/songwriter Paul Roberts, Driver’s Seat isn’t about driving, but rather “fragmented, conflicting thoughts and emotions that might follow the break-up of a relationship”. The song charted in Australia, New Zealand, Netherlands, UK, Canada, USA and Germany.
