This was the first single from Gore's second album. During the popularity of her first two singles ("It's My Party
" and "Judy's Turn to Cry") and her debut album (I'll Cry if I Want To
, which consisted of songs completely devoted to [you guessed it!] crying), Gore was in danger of being typecast with songs that had the same stories and themes. To prevent this, her producers decided to give her material that was more mature and sophisticated and appealing to teenagers and adults alike. This was probably the best time for songs like this as well, as Gore would become of age a year after this song's release.
