I must admit, that I hated every note and everything about this song, when I was in my late teens. And it was long forgotten until I found myself in the middle of a music quiz, and as the song played along I tapped my feet and actually found that it was groovy.
The composition is pretty basic, and the needs a lot of energy to get alive (no pun intended) - so I though why not take it into a more heavy direction? The pedal steel solo is taken from my Band in a Box composing program - which I honestly couldn't do better with a guitar - these a pro studio recording and the fellow playing the bit is Paul Franklin......credits to him - even I don't know the bloke.
