Farriss didn't sing much in INXS, so he needed some help coming into his own as a vocalist. His collaborators on this song, Hicks and Johnson, gave him a lot of help. "Both those guys are amazing singers," Farriss said in a Songfacts interview
. "When we came to track the vocal recording, I said, 'Who is going to sing it?' It was kind of funny because they looked me and they said, 'You are!' I'm like, 'You want me
to sing it?' They were like, 'Yeah, damn right.'
I was kind of nervous because these guys are really good singers, so I'm singing away and looking at them for approval, and they helped make me sound reasonably good. But after that, something happened to me where I was like, 'You know what, I'm not in a band anymore, I don't have to live under those dynamics.'"
