Released as the second single from Howard Jones' 1985 album Dream Into Action, "Look Mama" reached #10 in the UK Singles Chart. It was not released as a single in the US, but a different mix to those issued in the UK was included on the US-only remix album Action Replay.
The introduction to the song features some spoken dialogue sampled from the 1974 film Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore.
"Look Mama" is written from the standpoint of a child pleading with its over-protective mother to be allowed greater independence and room to develop its own personality.
