  4. Definitely remember that song. For me it was one of those songs that i really didn't like the first bunch of times I heard it but then grew on me and wound up enjoying. Definitely agree with the others, will have that on my mind today, and where I'm at right now, definitely some wisdom I can use. Thanks
