    You know, without even thinking about it. Your hands have done it so many times that they just play it out of sheer habit.

    For me, it's a keyboard instead of a guitar, but I ALWAYS find myself playing the opening riff of "5150."

    Either the riff to "Dance The Night Away" or "Mean Street."

    Covered both ends of the spectrum on that one.

    Oh yeah, what was I THINKING? "Humans Being" - What a riff...

    Well ain't life grand when you finally hit it, I'm always a sucker for a real good time, woke up in life to find i almost missed it,aint I glad that love is blind


    What kind of fashion is this flash infatation. Is all this admiration mutual. Need no lessons in emotional starvation, that look in her eyes is too good to be true
