Survivor guitarist Frankie Sullivan and keyboard player Jim Peterik
were their primary songwriters, and this was one of their compositions. Peterik left the band in 1996, and continues to play with The Ides Of March, which he founded in 1965. He told us: "This is one song that's not brain surgery. It came from a jam. A lot of great songs come from jam sessions. I remember soundchecks with Survivor and The Ides Of March, and there's no better place to start a jam then on stage. Everything is miked-up, you're in a good mood, the lights come on, the audience isn't there yet and you start jamming. High On You was similar to that, only it started in rehearsal. Frankie started jamming on this really great guitar riff. I started laying my right hand on the keyboard and coming up with that very sing-song melody."
