This song was written by Al Capps and Mary Dean with Cher in mind. At this point the recording career- and marriage of Sonny and Cher were in troubled waters- but Cher’s recording career as a solo artist was taking off. The backing instrumentals on this song- from the famous Wrecking Crew- of LA musicians -which of course included on drums our old friend Hal Blaine- another #1 single he played on.
