dude threw this at me today. i was 12 when this came out, so i was the target audience, and it worked.

Looking back, that's a good thing. It would be foundational power pop, if it weren't produced to be all pretty with the la-la high background vocals and the occasional strings. It's a good song.

Yeah, it wasn't bad insofar as bubblegum pop goes.

This could very well be a repeat. Seems like this isn't the first time my brain has latched on to this song like a Pit Bull with a Frisbee.

I heard this on the radio while driving the other day and it stuck with me; but, I had trouble finding a video that did it justice; until, this ... I like it. What do you think Dani?

After hearing it for the first time about a month ago, this has been on steady rotation in my haid:

Manfred Mann's Earth Band's version of "Spirits In The Night":

I've played that for probably a dozen people...No one has heard it (or remembered hearing it).

I guess, maybe, it didn't make it this far south.
