  • Kravitz wrote this about actress Lisa Bonet. They had broken up and he was trying to reconcile their relationship. They were married from 1989-1991 and had a daughter, Zoe.
  • Kravitz and Bonet did not get back together, but they are now good friends.
  • This was the first big hit for Kravitz. He had a minor hit in 1989 with his first single, "Let Love Rule" off the LP of the same name. (thanks, chet - saratoga springs, NY)
  • The song was heavily inspired by the Motown sound and by Earth, Wind & Fire. The horn section at the end is played by the brass section of Earth, Wind & Fire.
  • Kravitz played all the instruments on this track except the strings and horns. (thanks, Martin - Rostock, Germany, for above 2)

The album 'Mama Said' will always have a special place in my heart and in my record collection. I was 16 when this album came out and it was one of those records that everybody liked.
But around that same time my first girlfriend (the first TRUE girlfriend, well you know what I mean) broke up our relationship and I felt really heartbroken. And Lenny helped me out. This album was going about his break up with Lisa Bonet and with song titles like 'It Ain't Over 'till It's Over', 'Stand By My Woman', 'More Than Anything In This World' and 'All I Ever Wanted' he discribed extactly how I was feeling at the time. I too wanted my girlfriend back and couldn't believe that our love was over. So, it was like, Lenny is my pal, he knows exactly how I'm feeling.
Me and the mentioned girlfriend tried to get it back on a few years later but it wasn't the same anymore but Lenny Kravitz will always remain my 'buddy'.

The title was originally a famous line quipped by his holiness Yogi Berra ("a nickel ain't worth a dime anymore"). Great song.Brett - Edmonton, Canada
