  • Madonna wrote and produced this song with Shep Pettibone, who worked on some of her biggest hits, including "Like A Prayer" and "Crazy For You."
  • In lieu of a music video, Madonna released a compilation of footage from her 1987 Who's That Girl World Tour.
  • Madonna never performed this song live on any of her tours.
  • Tony Shimkin, who co-wrote several songs for the Erotica album - including the title song and "Deeper and Deeper," claimed he worked on this song but was never given credit.
  • When this debuted at #15 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart on the week of March 2, 1991, it was the highest new entry for a song since The Beatles' "Let It Be" arrived at #6 in March 1970.
