I love the slightly sharp bass fingering on the one in the first verse. It's very very subtle but it adds a raw quality that I actually picked up and use all the time now on both bass and guitar. Great kicked back rhythm and song.

What a great band, lucky enough to have enjoyed all the 80's music when it was being made

Wish they'd list the years, anyway,...Do n ' t wish to go back to the 80's...Just Remember, Appreciate, and Know you were there. ...no matter how hard, easy, or just that we have been there. ...& are still here, our Love will Never Die!

This song is not a mistake! Beautiful lyrics, melding perfectly with a well crafted background, and the result is the best anti war song written in music.
