This Chuck Berry-inspired track is about the French actress and singer Claudine Longet, who was charged with fatally shooting her boyfriend, Olympic skier Vladimir "Spider" Sabich on March 21, 1976. At the trial, Longet claimed the gun discharged accidentally as Sabich was showing her how it worked. Throughout the whole court case, her former husband, the singer Andy Williams, publicly supported Longet and she was eventually convicted of misdemeanor criminal negligence and sentenced to 30 days in jail.
Mick Jagger and Keith Richards wrote the song for inclusion on their 1978 Some Girls but legal difficulties prevented it finding its way onto the album. It was eventually included on the bonus disc of the 2011 Some Girls reissue. Said Richards to Spinner: "I wished, and I think all of us did at the time, that that should have been on the original album, but there was some legal difficulties and stuff. But otherwise, she was a perfect 'Some Girl.'"
