  • Along with "Back To Zero," this was one of 2 songs Mick Jagger wrote for Dirty Work. Keith Richards did most of the work on the album because Mick Jagger was busy promoting his solo album, She's The Boss.
  • Two extended versions were released as 12-inch singles, the "London Mix" and "NY Mix."
