The song was recorded using a cheap keyboard. Lissauer recalled to Uncut
: "Leonard had just been on Broadway and bought a Casio piece-of-crap synthesizer, for tourists. I go to his hotel, and he pushes a button, and it goes, boom-tish, boom-tish. He starts to sing the song, and I envisioned it with real musicians, letting it build and build. But he had his finger on this one key, playing the drumbeat. He was grinning like a school-kid. He loved the simplicity of it, and the fact that talented musicians weren't over-playing, Leonard can be stubborn. Usually to champion simplicity, or demo-like takes."
"We ended up recording it with his toy Casio. And because the beat didn't ever come to life, Leonard and Jennifer Warnes
swayed over it with very languid, personal singing. It really made it seductive."
