Magic Stairway

While walking down the stairs into Steve's basement, I got a flash of inspiration, a bass line just popped into my head. So before we even started recording, I was sitting on the couch in the basement writing out the lyrics to the song I just thought of: "At the Stock Exchange."

Moments later, we were recording it. It's probably the fastest birth of a song (at least for us) on record. Who knows, it probably stinks, but it seems sorta catchy.

If I knew you were posting in 1983, I would have totally joined in. I thought your dad wanted you to help build a fence.

Any audio of "Highway Star" from the talent show? I'm getting tired of the original.
