Songfacts®:

  • One of three refreshed versions of songs that appeared on 2002's Corporate America, Boston leader Tom Scholz told Ultimate Classic Rock how this differs from the original: "With that one, I saved some of the tracks from the original recording, but it's essentially a new recording," he said. "Now, the moment those giant three-part a cappella harmonies come in, you know it's a Boston song. I thought Tommy (DeCarlo) did a great job of covering that first verse lead vocal and finishing out the choruses. It works for me now and the slide guitar should have been there in the first place and it's a nice offset to Kimberley Dahme's flute line at the start of each verse."
