This was the first #1 hit written by future “Undercover Angel” singer Alan O’Day, who was inspired by the Beatles tune Lady Madonna. He explained to Billboard magazine: “I thought, well, I’m gonna write a song about somebody who’s growing up with the radio playing in the background of their life, with this rock and roll time we live in… there are songs for all of our emotions, and the radio really speaks for us in a way that nothing else does.”
