|Donna Summer singles chronology|
The song was originally featured on Summer's Once Upon a Time album, a concept album that tells the "fairytale" story of a girl's adventures as she goes from rags to riches. This song is found towards the end of the album, when the main character hears that someone is "looking for a girl like me" and hopes that the man in question is someone she has liked for some time. One of the verses in the original version was edited out for the 7" format. It is one of the earliest examples of disco, funk, rock, and electronica in pop culture. This was the second big hit in the UK from her Once Upon A Time album, which is most notable for its electronic suite on side 2, that influenced punk rock artists in the development of the 1980s new wave movement.
