This one is a doozy. ?While recording “Coming Up To Breathe”, I had a song idea that I was especially fond of. The band was not too fond of the original idea, and looking back, I can see why. ?However, while working at the studio one night, Barry saw a vision of hope within my poor little song, so we finished the song together at about 4 in the morning. ?
The good news: The song turned out better than I could have ever dreamed, and we were able to record it with the London Symphony.
The bad news: it still did not make the record. It was merely an exclusive track whenever you purchased “Coming Up To Breathe” from a certain retail chain. I still love the song, and think we should have put it on the album. Oh well, you can’t win them all.
