Rob Hyman and Eric Bazilian are founding members of The Hooters, and along with producer Rich Chertoff, they worked on Cyndi Lauper's album She's So Unusual
. After Hyman saw Osborne perform, he brought her to Chertoff's attention, who helped her get a record deal. On this album, they wrote most of the songs with Osborne, although Bazilian wrote her hit "One Of Us
" on his own. For this song, Osborne came up with the title and wrote most of the lyrics.
