Lead singer Steven Tyler got the inspiration for the title off a bumper sticker he saw a few years previously. The line “But you like the way I hold the microphone” was a reference to an almost identical line in The Rolling Stones’ 1965 song “The Spider And The Fly.”
This song is quite rare in popular rock music, in that the song starts with the chorus, then moves into the first verse, before going back towards a traditional verse-chorus-verse-instrumental-verse/chorus structure. Opening a rock song with the chorus, especially for a song that achieved relatively good radio coverage and sales such as Falling in Love, is very uncommon and innovative in the rock industry.
