  1. I love this song and most of their stuff… the only one that is hard for me to sit through is TCB because I’ve heard it so much…and every bar band has played it at least a 1000 times.

  2. That’s one of those songs that aired frequently, but not one I felt inclined to purchase. I think I had one BTO album with this song on it.
