I thought the lyrics were brilliant and profound. The production was just sensational. I called Johnny and said 'I don't know why you think you need a duet, this is a very complete version. He insisted, and I'm thrilled he did. He heard it as a duet and, honestly, he has created a very unusual and complete world of a song.

They aren't background parts, they're literally compacting several worlds into one world. It's really intriguing and wildly listeneable. ” - Melissa Manchester
