Album: Double Fantasy (1980)

Songfacts®:

  • This disco and New Wave-influenced song was originally released on Double Fantasy, Yoko Ono's joint album with John Lennon, as well as the B-side of his "(Just Like) Starting Over" single. The track was remixed in 2002 by Superchumbo and released as a single, reaching #20 on the US dance charts.
  • The song features Ono gasping heavily. Yoko explained to us that the song was created when she was withdrawing from a bad drug and kept breathing in pain. "All that time," Yoko said, "I realized that there was a crack in my beautiful art deco mirror. At the recording studio, I sung in total darkness, which gave the right mood to it."
