Songfacts®:

  • In his illustrious songwriting career, Smokey Robinson has covered a wide range of topics, but he found something new to write about on this cut: Taking a bath with your lover. The "love bath" is quite literal - Robinson explained that he and his wife Frances do it, and that it's a very intimate experience.

    The sultry tune did well on the quiet storm radio shows that Robinson helped create.
