Last Day Of School

Album: Life, Love & Hope (2013)
  • MusicRadar.com asked Boston leader Tom Scholz whether this song was always intended as an instrumental? He replied; "Yes. When I first started working on it, I knew that it had to be an instrumental. I wasn't sure that I was going to put the heavy guitars on it – it started out as just a keyboard piece. The keyboard part is pretty demanding, so I was a little hesitant about covering it up. But I really enjoyed playing guitar to it, so that became a dominant part of the arrangement."
