. When asked if the group knew DNA would bring that back to the top, Howie D told Songfacts
: "We had a good feeling that if we were going to have a chance to 'come back' that there was possibly a chance, especially with this first song, 'Don't Go Breaking My Heart.' When we all heard that for the first time, that was when we all just across the board said, 'This is something special,' which is very rare.
The demo was so good, and we needed to do it justice. You know, it's hit-or-miss sometimes when you're doing a demo. Sometimes it's sounding great when you hear all the voices and sometimes it's just meant to be with the person who wrote the song and did the demo. We, fortunately, put our voices to the song and it was like magic. We were like, 'This is it.'"
