The only track he did not actually collaborate to was "Inside to Outside", the second single taken from the album, which was written by Colin Pearson and Achim Opperman (the latter also composed the music). Though this song was a complete commercial flop for Limahl (it was actually released twice, the second time in a more spirited remixed version), it would later become a big worldwide hit for dance vocalist Lady Violet. The first single, "Love In Your Eyes", was instead a minor hit for ex Kajagoogoo singer, and, by only reaching Number 80 in the UK Singles Chart, it represented his last UK single to ever chart among the first 100 positions. The song fared much better in the rest of the world, especially in continental Europe, in particular in German-speaking countries (it went to Number 28 in Germany itself), and in Italy, where, peaking at Number 22, it became his second best-selling single in that country, after the famous soundtrack; it also won a popular Italian TV program along with a few other songs by other artists. The B-side to the second single, "Shock", was a stand-out album track, which also became quite popular in Italy. The album got plenty of airplay there and, though not charting at all in the United Kingdom, was actually very successful in Spain, where a third single was released, namely the title track, "Colour All My Days". This latter song was also adapted by request in Spanish as "No Lo Pienses Más" (meaning "Don't Think About It Anymore") and released as a further single there, with the original English version on its B-side, in fact making it the fifth promotional single to be internationally released from the album.
The LP/MC, generally considered as a commercial failure (at least in Great Britain and in the United States, where it also didn't chart), but highly sought-for as a collectable, was never released on CD, but the first 8 songs were digitally remastered by Disky Records for 1996 The Best of Limahl compact disc, which indeed only omits "Love Will Tear the Soul" (also B-side to the "Colour All My Days" first Spanish single) and the closing track, "For My Heart's Sake" (maybe the weaker song on the whole work). A reduced version of this digital compilation was out in 2002, again on the Disky label, entitled Neverending Story-Best of Limahl, and including 5 tracks from the original album. The full-length greatest hits first CD was however re-released in 2003.
