This is the first single from American singer Meat Loaf's eleventh studio album, Hang Cool Teddy Bear. The song was penned by American hard rock producer and songwriter James Michael, who has written a number of tracks for Meat Loaf. Michael had previously recorded the song with his own vocals in 2009.
The song involves Meat Loaf taking the part as a spineless lover of a gold-digging LA starlet.
At a listening party held in London, Meat Loaf explained the album name: "I found the title in a Russ Meyer movie called Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls," he explained. "It's something you'll love or hate but you walk past a poster saying Hang Cool Teddy Bear and I can guarantee you'll stop for three or four seconds. I have your attention."
