Songfacts®:

  • Sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson told the story of this song on the band's website.

    Ann: We made the guitars and drums in the song sound like a quagmire because that's what's all around the young person in this song. It's a song of warning about the dangers of this world, and so the instruments are all bleeding into one another and there's a sense of intensity and things buzzing out of control.

    Nancy: The song and its purpose mutated. Craig Bartock and I started it as a cautionary tale, a warning to a young woman on a red carpet. But when Ann got a hold of it, the song became something else entirely and something really phenomenal.
