Moby (from Rolling Stone): "The only songs I really like off Play are the quiet instrumentals. All the songs from here on in, I really like. The first five songs on the record don't interest me very much, but the last five songs I'm quite proud of."
"Abracadabra" was inspired by Diana Ross and The Supremes. Steve Miller first met the girl group when they performed together on NBC's Hullabaloo in 1966, and he wrote the lyrics after spotting Diana Ross skiing in the mountains years later.
