Van dit lied verschenen twee gelijknamige covers die de Tipparade haalden: de versie van The Mohawks (in 1969) en die van Dizzy Man's Band (in 1980).

De titel is vernoemd naar de "Mutual Of New York", een gebouw in New York City waarvan de beginletters van elk woord het woord MONY vormen. Tommy James en Ritchie Cordell hadden het lied reeds geschreven, maar nog geen titel. Toen Tommy op een dakterras stond en opkeek, zag hij de initialen in de top van het gebouw tegenover hem op een rood verlicht bord en daarmee was de titel van het lied geboren. Dit in neon verlichte bord werd in 2007 van de gevel van het gebouw verwijderd.

Trivia
