This is a cover of a Larry John McNally song. McNally also wrote "For My Wedding" which appeared on Henley's 2000 Inside Job
album. On his website
, McNally gives the background to this song: "I was in Amsterdam for the first time and had a night free. I wandered over to the music club Paradiso which is one of the coolest music venues anywhere. It's an old church with the altar as the stage with big stained glass windows behind it. That night there was a Gypsy band playing and the room was swirling. Girls from all over the world in a fever dance! I went back to my hotel and started writing this song."
