Nancy Wilson recalled how the instrumentation was inspired by a classic Moody Blues tune.
“I remember I had a bad flu and was kind of delirious,” she said. “The lyric was so great that it kind of lifted me up in my sick bed. Two days later I was better, and we started to set it to music. We were listening to a lot of Moody Blues back then. There was a song called Question that had this fast, fiery guitar rhythm. That was our idea for the groove. Then Roger Fisher came up with the really cool riff over A-minor to F, and that gave it some more beautiful momentum.”
