The recording session was originally slated for John Lennon, but, as Harry recalled, Lennon was "incapacitated." Cher walked into the studio just as Nilsson started to sing an alternative vocal causing Spector to exclaim "Nilsson and Cher! Number one worldwide!"
The song, released as a single on Spector's Warner Spector label did not sell well.
"I called us 'Nilssonny and Cher'" -- Harry
