Yes,I’ve listened to that song,COUNTLESS times over the years,YES,I know EVERY SINGLE drumstroke from that recording,by HEART (I’ve even caught myself tapping the drum-part with my fingers while drifting off to sleep!!! 😉 ) YET………….if someone told me I’d NEVER EVER be able to listen to that song AGAIN??? I’d completely FREAK and be placed in a sanitarium from hearing those words!!! BUT You know that song by HEART!!! You’ve listened to it a ZILLION TIMES BEFORE!!! SO WHAT if You never get to hear it again!?!? ………….B-E-C-A-U-S-E it’s R-U-S-H!!! THAT’S WHY!!!
