''I was looking for a song that would accentuate Cher's husky voice and exotic image, and Bob Stone delivered it. The song was originally titled "Gypsies and White Trash," but Stone revise it to make the title less offensive." - Snuff Garrett (producer)
''It was a song I recorded in, like, an hour. The producer, Snuff Garrett, hated to do more than two or three takes of a song. He was very proud of what he'd achieved and he was always telling you about it." - Cher
