This song was written and originally performed by Brenda Russell, who was working on an album in Stockholm, Sweden when inspiration struck. Says Russell, "It was a beautiful day, and I was looking outside. I was staying in a penthouse in Stockholm, so I was looking out over the city... Stockholm's a beautiful city. And then there were hot air balloons flying that day. And I was really tripping on how many ways you can get to a person. But anyway, I knew that's not what the [record] company wanted, and I went to bed. Later, I woke up, and the music was still there. And because I don't read or write music, it's extraordinary if a song is still in my head that I haven't jotted down or recorded. So if it's still in my head overnight, I think that's something extra special, it's like somebody trying to tell me something... So I said okay, well, maybe I'd better finish writing that song, because, you know, this never happens to me. So I wrote it... It was such a game for me writing that song, you know, how many ways you can get to a person. And the visuals. Like climb a tree and swing rope-to-rope, take a sled and slide down slope, ride a trailway, railway. You know, how many ways can you get to a person. And that became a fun thing to do."
