Regina Richards (born Regina Marie Cuttita) (m̶a̶r̶r̶i̶e̶d̶ name: Regina M. Lee). The song was written by Steve Bray, Regina Richards & Mary Kessler. Bray had written several hits for Madonna. It was intended for Madonna, with Regina deciding to record the song herself when Madonna declined. With Bray's production, it sounded similar to Madonna's own recordings and was sometimes mistaken for one.
