As the first track on the first Bad Company album, and also the first single released by the group, this song introduced them with the sound of drummer Simon Kirke counting in and blasting two beats to start things off. This open came about for practical reasons. In his 2017 Songfacts interview
, Kirke explained: "We were scattered all over this country house. Bad Company were doing their first album and I believe it was one of the first songs that we did. I was in the basement, Boz [Burrell] the bass player was in the boiler room, Mick Ralphs and Paul Rodgers were up in the main living room where the guitar amps were. So, in order to get their attention, because we couldn't see each other, I did the count: '1, 2... 1, 2, 3...' and then I did this 'guh-brah' to get everyone's attention. And that's how we kicked it off. It was born out of necessity."
