Cohen wrote this song as a tribute to a 22-year-old pierced, tattooed dancer he dated at one time.
After meeting she-male Simonne Simmons at a nightclub, it took Cohen half a year of relentless pursuit to convince her to sing the song, but he thought Simmons' unique, genderless, voice would make the song distinctive and unforgettable.
Guitarist James Lum, a fervent Christian, describes the song as his "Least Favorite."
A radio station in New England described the song as "Aretha Franklin meets Goth."
