Rock musicians aren't generally regular church goers but a surprising number of heavy metal songs have religious themes. "Mother Mary" is probably as near as UFO will ever get to recording a hymn. Co-written by vocalist Phil Mogg, lead guitarist Michael Schenker and drummer Andrew Maynard Parker, the Mary in question is that Mary.
In 1979, a live version was released on a three track single with "Doctor Doctor" and "Try Me". The studio version, from the 1975 Force It album, runs to 3 minutes 49 seconds.

The lyrics for Lesley Gore's "It's My Party" were based on actual events relating to his daughter Judy's sweet 16 party. The teenager threw a tantrum and burst into tears when her mum and dad insisted that her grandparents had to be invited.
