If the not so subtle sexual allusions -- interesting dream -- are any guide, sex was how they dealt with being "crazy."LOVE this song!I can remember that day in '76 as though it happened yesterday..first time I heard it.
Good Luck to all and I do believe that this song was dedicated to seafarers.
I had one of those "Wet Tunes" radios (anybody remember those things?
In an issue of Guitar World Acoustic about a year ago there was a piece where Nancy talked about the recording of the intro.
If I remember correctly, she said she played an acoustic with really bad action and her fingers were all messed up and stuff like that.
Does anyone know the real facts, and has whoever did play that ever done anything comparable? Also are there any explanations why the didn't do it on "The Road Home"?
You'd think that a band who has one of the best acoustic guitar pieces in rock music might want to include it in their acoustic show."Ann and Nancy described the meaning of this song to be about ecology and the preservation of the earth, clean air and clean water." WHAAAT? This song is clearly about infatuation - probably sexual infatuation."They returned to Seattle when that was no longer a threat of them being called up in the draft.
The fact that the Wilson sisters fled with draft dodging band members to Canada kinda bugs me.
I mean, many died in wars to give us the very freedom that allows Heart to play and sing whatever kind of music they want.
But I've heard from friends that it was the male guitarist who played the intro.
Maybe she was talking about the wild strumming and not the intricate main intro.
I couldn't understand at the time because two chicks were fronting a rock band and the write up was conducted by the raven haired one.
