Short extra solo added on the vinyl release. The writing credits read Cherone & Bettencourt, but in fact the song was written by Hal LeBeaux and Peter Hunt (music) and Gary Cherone (lyrics) of The Dream. It was also included on their 1984 eponymous EP. Later it became an item of the Extreme classic catalogue and was re-recorded for the first Extreme album.

Not included on Japan vinyl edition. The song takes its intro and ending guitar riff from Mozart's Alla Turca: Allegretto in A minor (1783). The song is also omitted from the 2020 limited edition "Vinyl is Beautiful" release.

Extreme is the 1st studio album by the rock band Extreme, released in 1989 by A&M Records. The album sold modestly well at around 300,000 units and produced four singles: "Little Girls", "Kid Ego", "Mutha (Don't Wanna Go to School Today)" and the radio-only "Play with Me". It was not until their next album, Extreme II: Pornograffitti, that the band become well known.

Extreme is an American rock band formed in Boston, Massachusetts, in 1985, currently headed by frontman Gary Cherone and guitarist Nuno Bettencourt. The band reached the height of their popularity in the late 1980s and early 1990s with original line-up Gary Cherone, Nuno Bettencourt, Paul Geary and Patrick Badger.

They have released five studio albums, two EPs (in Japan) and two compilation albums since their formation. The band was one of the most successful rock acts of the early 1990s, selling over 10 million albums worldwide. Extreme achieved their greatest success with their 1990 album Pornograffitti, which peaked at number 10 on the Billboard 200, and was certified gold in May 1991 and double platinum in October 1992. That album featured the acoustic ballad single "More Than Words", which reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States.
