This song is about child prostitution. Gilder had moved from Vancouver to Los Angeles, and was amazed at how many young girls he saw working as prostitutes on Hollywood Boulevard.
This was Gilder's only hit. He was previously in a group called Sweeney Todd.
This took 21 weeks to get to #1 in the US, a record at the time.
