I love this song! A great rock number from the 80s. I’m really glad it hasn’t disappeared altogether in light of new music, but I’m also glad that modern artists are covering it. Artists who cover other artists’ works are sometimes called unoriginal but I think doing a cover gives you a great opportunity to take something “old” and make it “new” by putting your own spin on it.
