This song was written by Jackie DeShannon
for Marianne Faithfull. The singer's manager Tony Calder told Mojo
magazine September 2008 that the liaison with DeShannon happened in an unorthodox manner when he was in Los Angeles with Jimmy Page. He explained: "One night I couldn't get into our hotel room because Jimmy and Jackie DeShannon were shagging. So I yelled, 'When you've finished could you write a song for Marianne?'" The songwriter came up with this song plus with Page an album track, "In My Time of Sorrow."
