    1- Like the driving intro. Vocals sound a bit like the Dropkicks. Also reminds me of the Call a little. Don’t like the harmonies on the chorus. Now starting to get a little monotonous. Hmm, started off with a lot of promise but didn’t really build on it.

    2- Not much to say, very pleasant song.

    3- Immediately want to grab a guitar and start playing along. This should be higher on the list of songs of theirs that you hear all the time. Wonder what his vocal chords felt like after recording this. Enough typing, now resuming headbanging.

    4- Don’t love the intro but love what it changes into. Always thought these guys were a little overrated but this is one of the few songs of theirs that I always love hearing. Goes well with coffee @ 5:48AM, who’da thunk?

    5- Awww, yeah. Someone was watching Valley Girl! Pure early-80′s perfection. This is one of those songs that so perfectly captures a small slice of time in your life and takes you right back to it every time you hear it. Listen to that crazy Byrds-inspired Rickenbacker! Impossible to listen to without singing the chorus at maximum volume, though it’s a song to which it’s impossible to drive slowly when it comes on. I remember this song coming on the radio at about 1AM as I was driving home after my girlfriend and I had broken up (she actually threw a wine bottle at me), looking down at the speedo of my old BMW 2002 and seeing that I was doing 110mph. Whoa. This holds up really well, unlike a lot of songs from this era. If I played this along with “I Melt With You” and Translator’s “Unalone”, it would take me several days to come back from 1983. What a great song, thanks for reminding me!
