When he invited a certain woman to his place, Isaak told Rolling Stone, he regretted the decision before he hung up the phone. "It was one of those things where they call,' they say, 'I'm comin' over.' You know you shouldn't, but you let 'em." Before the woman arrived, he wrote this sexy song about not wanting to fall for her. (Once she arrived, "we didn't do much guitar playing," he added.) An Atlanta DJ who'd heard an instrumental version in the movie "Wild at Heart" began playing the original on air, the first step in the song's top ten journey.
