yeah, my first thought was how i'd hate to hear it on the radio. somehow that diminishes the song. but that's only cos what i know of radio is CRAP. and things are played to death. this happened to me with coldplay's 'the scientist'.. the radio murdered it.

on the other hand, it's a special song and maybe this way there will be people who need it in their lives that wouldn't have heard it otherwise.

*nod* Yeah. I can just imagine hearing a disc jockey interrupting it to announce the next track... urgh. Not nice.

You're right though- I mean, my younger brother has at best a casual interest in the band, but he's fallen in love with that song after I've played him HTDAAB a few times. I even logged onto the computer a few days ago to see he'd been looking up guitar chords for it. :)

... and if that song can grab someone in a way that Vertigo, for example, cannot, then it cannot be bad.

I was talking to a girl the other day whose father died around the time ATYCLB was released, and who associated Walk On with that time. She said she felt cheapened when she heard it playing in a shop.
