Bryan Adams' Get Up! album was produced by Jeff Lynne. Adams first met Lynne back in 1987 in the UK, but it was a director of a TV pilot that was never made, who put the pair together on disc. "The guy said, 'I need some songs. I'm gonna get my buddy Jeff to do one,'" recalled Adams to Billboard magazine. "I said, 'Oh, you know Jeff?' 'Yeah.' "Tell him I said hi.' Next thing I know I get a message back; 'Jeff wants you to give him a call if you get a chance next time you're in L.A.' So I called him and he said, 'Next time you're in L.A., come over and have a cup of tea.' So that's all it was; I went over there one day and on the way out he said, 'Hey man, we should cut a song some time.' 'Hell yeah!'"
