I never usually get involved in these types of discussions,but after hearing about the similarities between "Desperate Heart" and "Any....." for the 13 billionth time,I 've had it. So,as I was sitting here burning Paul a CD of the original master of "Back In America" from Network ( a friend of mine told me he had been looking for one), I decided to respond from my perspective.

1. I agree,it's my least favorite song along with "Nothin But....". The verse IS derivative.But ,when writing it,Mark said he had written a similar verse in an old Touch song that pre-dated Journey's song.So,whatever........Beethoven took all the good notes anyway.No intent was ever there,I think all this discussion of it is hilarious,anyway.

2. Journey should DEFINITELY sue us for our aggregious plagarism!! They,after all,could use the money, being destitute, and we are all obviosly CLEANING UP from all the bazillions of dollars in royalties we're making off the song.
