About the song[]

The song was written and produced by Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards, who also both performed on the track with drummer Tony Thompson. All three would later be involved with the Power Station project.

The song was originally released as a single taken from Sister Sledge's album We Are Family in 1979, with a re-release issued in September 1984 which peaked at no.4 on the UK charts. The re-release included a 12" Special 1984 Nile Rodgers Remix version featuring Simon Le Bon and Andy Taylor singing backing vocals on one line - "melody is good to me". The 1984 version was recorded at the Maison Rouge studios in South West London during the end of July, when Duran Duran were recording "The Wild Boys" in the next studio.
