Album: Single Release Only (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • This topped the Dance chart in 2013 when it was remixed by Dave Audé. It was Yoko's tenth tune to top Billboard's Hot Dance Songs. Yoko Ono told us that she'd written two songs and sent them both to Audé and the American producer chose this one and sent it to her. "I was totally inspired by it," she said, "and immediately sung over the magical track. Audé is rolling with magic."
  • Dave Audé is the older brother of Major League Baseball player Richard Audé, who played first base for the Pittsburgh Pirates in the mid-'90s.
