Oh, Damn Yankees, damn right! I loooooved this song back when I recorded it off the radio. Loved it so much, yours was one of the few cassettes I invested money in. And I still love it now. This is one of my favorite rock ballads of all time, which is saying something, since I love me some rock ballads. And one of the lyrics really resonated with me as I was listening to this one again. “Can you take me high enough to fly me over yesterday.” I don’t think I ever paid attention to that before, Damn Yankees, but damn. What a great lyric. As someone who has many regrets about his past and who thinks for the most part I’m not worth much of a future, being with someone who can make you look past the past is a rare find. And my wife’s done her damndest to do just that, even though I’m a tough nut to crack. But the way I feel about her is the same way I feel every time I listen to you guys sing and play the hell out of the chorus on this. Which is to say, I love her more than anything.
