Personal Quote:

When I wrote "Hey Little Cobra", Jan Berry, Brian Wilson and Roger Christian were all standing there and they went, "We knew it was written by a girl". No girl had ever written a hit hotrod song. And I said, "Why?" And they said, "Because you can't take your Cobra out of gear and let it coast to the line".
