- The radio edit of this song is the version that appears on EP/single releases.
- From A Guided Tour Of Factory Showroom:
The opening track, and first single, is a pretty big departure for us, as it is our first ode to getting it on. Written with Iggy Pop's bassist Hal Cragin, and featuring a horn and string arrangement by TMBG road veteran Kurt Hoffman (also known for his work with The Ordinaires) this track spotlights Eric's phenomenal playing over a very fine groove laid down by Brian, Hal and percussionist Sue Hadjopoulos.
- Danny Weinkauf considers this song to be among his favorite TMBG bass lines, along with Rest Awhile.
- TMBG performed this song on The Larry Sanders Show on September 21, 1996. As an aside during the performance, the character played by Scott Thompson (a TMBG fan and member of The Kids In The Hall) says to Larry, "Great band, eh?".
- Earlier live performances of the song contained the lyrics "All by herself, nobody else" and "All night long, nobody else" instead of the line "Around the clock with nobody else".
