Studio version recorded for their 1977 self-titled debut album, but only included on their second album In Color, which was released later in 1977. This version had a medium tempo with a country feel and a honkey tonk piano throughout the song.

They played it on April 28th and 30th at their famous concerts that took place at the Budokan temple in Tokyo. The concerts were released as the Live At Budokan album, which captured Cheap Trick's live energy.

Tiqqun: 'The Girl is the dominant social relationship, the central form of the the desire of desire, within the spectacle.' As Kojève parses Hegel: I don't desire the other as a thing. I desire the other's desire. Or to translate that into pop: 'I want you to want me / I need you to need me.'" –McKenzie Wark
