I also read that he wrote it for Claudia Lennear, the beautiful, black backup singer. That makes more sense to me but for some reason it usually is said about Rita. I can't find anything where Leon actually said who inspired it. Maybe Rita just said she was the muse. - Comment by cherilb 1 year ago
