War Babies. Great stuff. Hall and oats. On a different level than their pop crap.
Thanks to my daughter I fell in love with this song all over again. Jackie D. Your too special
Love todd
He's by no means a great, or even good, singer, but the production and arrangements on this are f'ing brilliant. and his voice, although bad, fits pretty well w/ it all.
This is a horrible song, horribly sung by Rundgren.
Fond memories of my childhood watching my dad drink alone in the basement at the bar listening to this song softly in the background.
Who hasn't stayed up late at night thinking about how to have that conversation when you know it's over but you really want to save it.
wrong ending; I prefer it the ending with the horns falling apart at different times; I was always disappointed this version was on the Anthology doubled disk, first time I ever heard the fade out end and didn't like it
A true genius ! He is also amazing producer . Check out War Babies from Hall & Oates and see the influence he had on that album....... . . . . . . . .

Just on the edge of having too much melodic tension -- but not over the edge.
Amazing song. Short, but very romantically captivating.
I almost forgot why I wanted to comment on this song- one of my all time favorite songs- reminds me of my early teens a girl I was totally absorbed with. Wish I was 13 again.
Rev Rob- you are beginning to annoy me. I am a christian myself and although I accept Christ into my life I don't try to read it into everyone elses life. Rundgren wrote this song after a breakup. Listen to the rest of the songs on the album and I don't think you won't come to the conclusion that he was converting at the time. Please give it a rest.
This song is timeless

This song touches me....

brings a joy and sadness to my soul all at once...so beautiful... I never get tired of this song...
I was a young girl when this song came out.
I like it so much, gives me a good feeling all over.
I was very young when this song came out, and it is what I remember as being one of my first "favorite songs".
ahhh....one of my very favorite songs in the world. what an incredible writer. Reminds me of being young and Freeeeeeeee. . . .

Rev Rob let's go to bed.
When TR wrote this song he was going through a conversion of sorts, He was accepting Christ in his life. This song is Jesus talking. Listen to it this way & see a different context completely. Most of us dismiss Jesus easily. Christ is always seeking a deeper relationship with us. "Its important to Me to know that you are free". "Think of Me". So many of TR's songs have The Lord in them. Listen with a different ear. Rev Rob

This is for you Mitch. Then and now.
Some songs just give me goosebumps and lumps in my throat. This one does both!

This song reminds me of a loved one from my past.
A carefree summer song...the days of being 7 again

This song takes me back to a time when I didn't have a care in the world...yet even as a child I realized beauty of this song and the lyrics. It still touches me to this day. Thank you Todd for writing this masterpiece. It's a wonderful contribution to music as a whole.

Pass it on...Todd Rundgren is unique and of value regardless of time, style, fad, or flavor of the month--highl y recommended. Wish I could have seen him in concert.
