Songfacts®:

  • This sunny tune was possibly the last song the Banshees ever worked on. "It's so up and poppy," Siouxsie commented to Mojo, "an unguarded moment when I sound happy."
  • The video was shot by John Hillcoat who later directed The Proposition and The Road. It was filmed at a children's beauty pageant in Arizona. "All these young girls with plastered smiles and make-up was a bit yuck," Siouxsie told Mojo. "So if you watch the song with the video, the whole thing has a perversity to it." And I got to play this Bette Davis/Baby Jane character."
