Ziggy Marley (real name: David) wrote this when he was 20 years old. He is the son of reggae legend Bob Marley.
Talking Heads member Jerry Harrison played keyboards on this. The album was produced by Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz, also of the Talking Heads.
Bob Marley's other children were in the group - Stephen, Cedella and Sharon Marley. With this song, they accomplished something their father never did: a Top 40 hit in the US.
