On this song Grace Jones dismisses another person's life dramas with an nonchalant sneer. This was written by Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders, as "like all the other London punks, I wanted to do reggae. It was included on The Pretenders 1980 self-titled debut album but when the singer heard Jones' version she conceded, "That's how it's supposed to be done. Jamaican musical legends Sly Dunbar & Robbie Shakespeare supplied the backing to this track. Dunbar recalled to Mojo magazine December 2008 that the template for Grace Jones' innovative early 1980s new wave/urban/club hybrid originated on this song. He recalled: "It came from Peter (Tosh) at that time, and we were doing gigs with the Stones and with Santana, so we used to sit and listen. This is when we start opening the snare to get more 'crack' on the back beat and more 'choof' with the foot drum.
