Hornsby's piano work in the cover is just amazing. The ending of the song is just sublime.

You are not voting for me. You are voting for a great piece of music. I just happen to be the idiot who submitted it.

I had that NGDB album. Listened to it a ton back in the 90s. Some really great versions of country/folk/bluegrass songs on there.

That's never been one of my favorite Rage songs.
The 80s are a goddam travesty. There's a beautiful song buried under all that synth in the Hornsby song. I

True. That synth does nothing but date the song.
