    i liked the non-live version better, even if only because it's produced better and i don't have to listen to the audience.

    Heard the live version the radio kept playing over and over. Now I come hear and hear the album version for the first time. One of my favorites too.

    people like me, i personally cant help but sit and vibe to the genre, i grew up on this music, ill be 20 next moth, but it reminds me of how innocent being a kid really was, now that im getting older and have more " responsabilitys " and then look at some of the younger people, how they act and what they listen to, they dont even know what a lot of this music is lol , just man how times have changed, make me feel OLD!
