CommentsRecorded at: M.C. Studios, Los Angeles, CA. Mixed at: Conway Studios, Hollywood, CA (MCA Records) George Harrison appears courtesy of Dark Horse Records. Jeff Lynne appears courtesy of Reprise Records "I remember that being written in the studio," Mike Campbell says. "Tom and Jeff had started it but they didn't have all the words. We were mixing 'Free Fallin',' which we had just done, and they went in the next room and finished it on the piano. Things were moving fast around that time." "I remember coming down to Michael's garage to do background vocals," Howie says. "It was the first time I worked with Jeff Lynne. George Harrison was there. I did vocals with Tom, George and Jeff. We got the parts pretty quickly. It was all done in maybe 40 minutes." The promotional music video was directed by David Leland.
