This was written and originally recorded by the Oakland-based rock band Billy Satellite. It appeared on their 1984 self-titled album and was released as a single, peaking at #78 in the US. Eddie Money was a reliable hitmaker when he released his version in 1986, taking it to #14. The song is about a guy who longs for the triumphant days of his youth when he thought life would always be filled with piques of joy and new experiences.
