Songfacts®:

  • This uptempo Bernie Tormé track was released in 1984 both as a 7-inch single on Zebra Records in the UK and as a 12-inch on the Picap label in Spain.

    The former runs to 3 minutes 43 seconds and is backed by "Lightning Strikes"; recorded live on Tormé's tour the previous year, it was actually manufactured in France.

    The 12-inch recording, the Midnite Version (or Midnight Version) is backed by a live version of "Lighting Strikes" and runs to 8 minutes 36 seconds.
  • After the sudden death of guitarist Randy Rhoads, Tormé had played briefly with Ozzy Osbourne, which might just have helped inspire this song. >>
