BJ’s version (the older bootleg, not the NJ deluxe version) is far superior, imho.

I like Cher singing that. The BJ version from YouTube I didn't think was that good.

(Sorry I don't know how to get two quotes in one post. So I had to do two posts.)

NJ deluxe booklet doesn't claim that I think. Spotify's writing credits attribute the entirety of the bonus tracks to JBJ, RS and DC, for whatever reason. Gotta be a mistake, as I think even The Boys Are Back In Town is credited as such.

The song is probably only Desmond Child. But to maintain the credibility of these artists/bands, they are included to songwriting credit. I guess Desmond would get a bigger check. This is more common than you think.

I think some of these are wild guesses haha.

The song is credited as being written by Alice Cooper, Desmond Child and Joan Jett. So I dont think it was offered to Joan if she was involved in writing it, personally.

My money's on it being a leftover from the writing sessions Desmond had with Joan for the Up Your Alley record. Joan probably felt it was a bit too tame (and cheesy), so Desmond kept the track and offered it to his next clients (these being Alice and BJ).
