    This song grabbed me long ago. We play an acoustic version in our duo, and in our full electric band. We ask for an audience volunteer who has a sense of rhythm and can count to four. We hand them a cowbell and have at it.

    Great tune, great band. But as much as Ilove Reaper and Godzilla, there was so much more to them:

    Cool tune, and I don’t!
    I played it as a request at my piano bar/lounge gig a coupla months ago.
    Smartarse thought I wouldn’t know it.
    Showed him!

    I downloaded this as the wife’s iPhone ringtone few years back... changed her primary ringtone to something else as to not offend the hyper sensitive that know the mini series.
