Like the two other cover tunes on the CD, this one, in many key ways, defined my life as a kid. I always wanted to revisit these songs — thank them, really — and "Finally" seemed like the right time and place.
Many of the songs whose true greatness eludes us at first (fools that we are) require a context different from the one in which we first heard them to alert us to their charms. Such was the case for me and this masterpiece. Not that I'm not a diehard fan of the original. Oh, you have no idea...
But let's face it, I'm no Andrea McArdle and wrenching this song away from her indelible recording was neither easy, nor painless — nor well-advised, some might argue. But damn, do I love this tune! So for better or for worse, and with much respect to originalists the world over, here is my attempt at an anthem for the ages.
Hey, it worked for Jay-Z.
