Released on the Epic label, on the same record as "The Songbird Sings Long Vocal Mix" (9 minutes 59 seconds) and "Cherry Talk Conversational Mix" (5 minutes 29 seconds), "French Kiss" was written by Karlana Johnson and Lil Louis (Louis Burns). Johnson wrote the words - such as they are.
This song was caught up in one of the UK's periodic censorship flaps when future Home Secretary Jack Straw told the Times that his 9 year old son could not understand "why so many people should buy a record of a woman panting, then groaning, interspersed with the occasional mumbled phrase."
The song has been widely sampled, including on "Custom Made (Give It to You)" by Lil' Kim, "Quickie" by Geto Boys, and "Au Pair Girls" by The Wiseguys.

David Bowie's "Space Oddity" tells the story of an astronaut who cuts off communication and floats into space. The BBC used it extensively in their coverage of the 1969 moon landing - an odd choice considering the lyrics.
Katy Perry's "Dark Horse" was co-written by Sarah Hudson, who is a singer-songwriter and a member of the Pop group Ultraviolet Sound. Though Sarah isn't related to Katy (whose real name is Katy Hudson), she is the first cousin of another famous person with the same name, the actress Kate Hudson.
