Dan’s comments: “Sometimes When We Touch” has enjoyed enough comments, so I’ll take the Fifth on this song. Its history speaks for itself. (For anyone wanting my in-depth story on “Sometimes…,” you can find it in my book, I Am My Father’s Son HarperCollins Canada, 2009). “Fourteen Today,” “Longer Fuse,” “Southern California,” and “McCarthy’s Day” are my personal favourites on this album. While I’m obviously proud of the success of “Sometimes…” and am forever grateful to my preternaturally gifted co-writer on that song, Barry Mann, and my producers, Matthew McCauley and Fred Mollin, I can no longer be objective about the song itself, as it is “bigger than me, bigger than life.”
