Wind blows back and the batons charging
It winds all the way
Right to the butt of my gun
Maybe now your time has come

    As usual, somebody tagged this as from SITN but it isn't. I remember sitting on a couch stoned at my friend Danny's house in about 1984. I heard this song on Jim Ladd's radio show and noticed how completely badass it was. I turned to my friend Jay and said, "Who is this?" He goes, "I think it's UFO." Therein began my lifelong obsession with UFO and Schenker. True story.

    @ Arnar -- One of best rock songs OF ALL TIME, but to agree with your point, yes certainly of the 70's

    Schenker just on *fire* on this track, and in this era. Just like Downing or Shermann and Denner, Travers or Steve Hackett; they just had it at one point. Did some good stuff afterwords but just can't quite do it again.
