The band planned a more contemporary version of this song when they set out to record it, but that plan changed when they got in the studio. "We were basically just doing it as a two-guitar, rock and roll approach," guitarist Brad Whitford said in his Songfacts interview
. "We were up in the studio recording it, and we were listening very heavily to the original version of the song, which was very similar to what we ended up with when we ended up bringing the horn section in. We decided, 'Let's actually make it sound a little more period. Let's have the horns on it and make it sound more like the original version that we heard.'
So that was quite a transformation, going from this straight-ahead guitar thing to almost a big band sound. And it really worked."
