This song has been an earworm for me for 30+ years, as it was played nonstop for many months on the radio, but then my church youth group ended up doing a whole puppet show performance of the song for another year or two after that, ugh...

Everyone always loved Perry's part but I was always such a fan of the textures of the voices across that recording. Listen to everyone from Bob Dylan to Steve Perry to Willie Nelson to Tina Turner and you can hear the true, natural voice of talent of everyone in that room, as opposed to 40 years later where the goal is to make EVERY singer on the streaming playlist sound exactly like the one that came before and the one that comes after (with all the songs written by the same 5-8 production teams and songwriters).

About 10 years ago I did a singing impressionist show where I did every voice on the recording. It was a lot of fun - but the most fun singing was Huey Lewis' powerful, bluesy voice, Cyndi's awesome belting, and of course Perry's iconic performance:
