Child of the Moon was one of the early open-tuning numbers on the electric guitars, because Street Fighting Man was all acoustic guitars.
Child of the Moon is probably the more original of the two numbers we have cut for a single. It's a pretty song. I think it will do well in America - it's more for the American market. It has a country and western influence.
