You don't usually affiliate hard rock music with keyboards. However, that's exactly what Lita Ford did, when she moved from hard rocking music with the Runaways to her more glam-rock solo career, and it helped the song gain crossover appeal. The song itself starts slow and builds quickly to a chaotic, energetic conclusion.
This song, a breakthrough for her in 1988, came after a management change to Sharon Osbourne Management - yes, that Sharon Osbourne. It hit #12 on the US charts and kicked off a period of generally strong success. Lyrically, the song is somewhat sexually charged - she's singing about getting laid - or not - which wasn't a typical subject women tackled in 1988.
It was Ford's boldness that made her something of a feminist icon - and probably contributed to this song being featured in the movie Captain Marvel.
Ford did take a long hiatus from the mid-90s until about 2010, but she is back and still performs this song.....
