    this meant nothing to me when I bought the album, that was a long time ago and things change over time,

    "This is the day your life will surely change..." not always for the better, as recent experience has shown me. I watched a plane fly across the clear blue sky, today, on landing approach to Ontario airport in California, and thought of this song.

    An all time favorite of mine. Timeless in its perfection. And so few ever heard of, yes one person, especially those in the mainstream of musical tastes.

    Best song from the 80's. Had the CASSETTE of this :) The accordian makes it.

    This was one of my favorite songs from the 80's. One of my best friends in my fraternity John Hilde introduced it to me. I haven't seen or heard from either him or this song in years. Nice memories.

    As someone said years ago on this thread this song is upliting or depressing depending on your mood. In my 20s it was a song of hope in my thirties a song of despair and this morning in my forties is a happy sing a long as I prepare to tick things off my to do list because I did go to bed last night and did not stay up watching my eyes turn red.

    I had no idea this song was so old ! The "alternative radio" I listened to played it so much I assumed it came out in the early 90s. I wonder why it was so popular years after. I know The The had a song on Reality Bites, it may have something to do with it. Its a timeless classic, regardless.
