‘You Took My Breath Away’ is the tenth song on Traveling Wilburys Vol. 3.

Tom and I did that vocal together, live, in one take.

I like ‘You Took My Breath Away’, ‘New Blue Moon’. That’s a really fun album. There’s a lot of great lead guitar on that record from George, too.

Carrie Fisher was thanked in the album’s liner notes for the song. When asked why she later explained: “I gave George Harrison that lyric (you took my breath away and now I want it back)…..and he used it in that song. It was from a poem I wrote when I was in my late teens. (17?)”
