Edmunds returned to the American Top 40 for the first time since 1970 ("I Hear You Knocking
") with this song about a man whose woman is losing interest in him. It was written and produced by Jeff Lynne of the Electric Light Orchestra, who also produced the album's title track.
Edmunds had produced his own material to this point, and decided to try something different by using an outside producer. His first choice was Phil Collins, but Collins didn't have the time. "Then I thought of Jeff Lynne, because he was Mr. Techno back then and he used to make great-sounding records," Edmunds said in his 2015 Songfacts interview. "Although now I listen to them and they sound a bit dated. I'm a bit puzzled why I was so enamored with Jeff, but he is very creative in the studio. He can go in with nothing and right on the spot make a record. I was taken with that."
