i tried this song a few years ago but wasn't satisfied, but I feel better about this rendition. Maybe I'm improving. Anyway, hope you like it! My goodness... this song is about 30 years old!

John that was a very nice version, even though it's 30 years old I think it stands the test of time. The intro was very cool too!!
