Album: Ingenue (1992)

Songfacts®:

  • This single was the follow-up to the hit "Constant Craving" and it's chiefly remembered for its video, which was, along with its romantic lyrics, a satire of the long-running Lawrence Welk Show. Lang parodied her own androgynous image by appearing in a yellow ball gown with fringe and daisies in her hair while singing about falling in love amid violin music and bubbles floating on the set. Her fans were very amused and she continues to get requests for this song when she performs. >>

  • "Chatelaine" is borrowed from the Canadian women's magazine of the same name. The publication once chose Lang - a native of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada - as Woman of the Year.
