Gotta Love the Ride

Album: The Stories We Could Tell... (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • A track from Mr. Big's eighth studio album The Stories We Could Tell..., "Gotta Love the Ride" is one lead singer Eric Martin's favorites. "Life is more about the journey than the destination," he told us in describing this song's inspiration. "The destination for some of us is a big payoff, but the journey is what you remember, and that's the key to paradise in my opinion. Everybody wants to cross the finish line as fast as they can, but without taking in life's beautiful moments. That's pretty much what I wrote that about."
