Bowlegged Lou of Full Force said the producers tapped into a range of influences for the Motown-flavored track… including a slice of British pop. "We consider ourselves musical historians," he told Fred Bronson, author of The Billboard Book Of #1 Hits
. "We went back to the old Motown days… we went back to Diana Ross and the Supremes… listen to 'Head to Toe.' Of course you hear the full Motown feel, but underneath it you've got some hard-driving drums, which is the Full Force sound. You've heard of Lulu. She did the song 'To Sir With Love
.' We went into that song also… when people hear it, they say, 'it sounds like something I know,' but they really can't put their finger on it unless we tell them."
