So how often has this happened to you? You're walking through a big box store, say a Home Depot, and a song you don't ever recall hearing before comes over the PA system and completely grabs you. Yeah, me neither. At least not till yesterday, when I spent a good couple of minutes just standing in the tool department of the local Depot listening to this song, especially its killer chorus, trying to latch onto a lyric fragment that I could google later on to track the song down. The only thing I was sure of was that the band had to be from Texas.
Turns out I was right about the Texas part. The song was Fastball's "The Way" which apparently was a big hit about ten years ago. I wonder how I missed it.
