Pavlovian response to it. Plus, it's just fun to rock out to. Also - if anyone knows the name of the lead male dancer, please let me know what it is. Ahem.
Damn, this performance of the tune's so hot, I feel like I need a towel after watching it. (Although I'm annoyed that the guitars were so loud, you could barely hear the bass.)
Penelope Crowe recently encouraged writers to expose themselves through their work. That's what I'm doing by including this tune, believe it or not. It's my favorite, in the whole wide world of tuneage, and has been for...Lord, many, many moons, now. If it comes on the radio/Interwebs of a sudden, I have to drop whatever I'm doing to focus on it. I can make it repeat on my MP3 player throughout my whole commute home into the 'burbs from Manhattan and not tire of it. I have a number of hopes pinned upon this song - there's just something about it that strikes a prophetic chord in me. Promised You a Miracle holds a special place in my heart and soul, for its assertion that "...everything is possible in the game of life..." From your lips to God's ears, Jim Kerr.
