Songfacts®:

  • This is actually a refreshed version of a song that appeared on 2002's Corporate America, one of three tracks re-recorded for Life, Love & Hope. Boston leader Tom Scholz told Billboard magazine he feels Corporate America, "didn't get a fair shot, and I wanted (the songs) to have a possibility of being heard by more people."

    "Someone (2.0)," he added, "is basically a second try. I wasn't happy with it (on Corporate America); I don't think I captured what I was after."
  • Scholz told Ultimate Classic Rock how he went back to work on "Someone" with vocalist Brad Delp. "He re-sang some lines and I did a lot of rearranging," he said. "I ended up remixing it and it took over the course of [what] I think was eight years to get it to where I finally thought it should have been in the first place and where I was happy with it."
