This was a greatest hits package, and Tina wanted a bonus single to round out the package. I had submitted Love Thing to her for Foreign Affair and she wasn’t sure about the tune, I think she thought it was too racy. I asked her to have a second listen when they were looking for a single for this record, I had ‘cleaned’ the lyrics up a bit, and Tina decided she loved it after all and recorded it.
