    This later stuff pales in comparison to the early years. Was not the same after the death of Terry Kath, RIP.

    I really miss this time and place in my life, and wish we could go back. Listening to this does that, for the short time that the song plays! THANKS FOR THE SONG POST!

    I don't understand people who have to write such negative words about a song. Truly, if you don't like a song people - DON'T LISTEN - simple as!!!! Variety is the spice of life and thank goodness we don't all have the same taste in music. So there! HAH!

    Quite possibly one of the worst, sickly sweet piles of crap that America has ever had the nerve to sign, let alone export to the rest of the world. Music for people with no concept of what true a$$ gravy actually is. Keep lapping it up people, this will only be played at funerals from now on...
