This song addresses the fallout that Viagra has wreaked upon married couples of a certain age. Staton told The Times February 13, 2009: "I was in a restaurant in Atlanta one time, and I got talking to this woman. She told me her husband had started dressin' up and dying his hair, buying perfume, smelling good. At first she thought it was all for her, but then it turns out he had gotten Viagra and fallen for a younger woman."
Pete Townshend never had a #1 UK hit with The Who or as a solo artist, but he did produce and play on a song that hit the top spot there: "Something In The Air" by Thunderclap Newman, a group he assembled.
The lyrics to "Heartbreak Hotel" were written by a steel guitar player who was once a dishwasher repairman. He was inspired by a newspaper story about a man who killed himself and left behind a note saying only, "I walk a lonely street."
His keyboard work helped define the Muscle Shoals sound and make him an integral part of many Neil Young recordings. Spooner is also an accomplished songwriter, whose hits include "I'm Your Puppet" and "Cry Like A Baby."
