I've always thought Tom Scholz was an arrogant ***.His quote that "Your claim that this was 'the guy who originally did it' is a bit mystifying, since he never played on that recording, nor has he been 'of Boston' since he left my band over a quarter century ago, after performing with us for only three years." Actually, since he DID do it on the tour promoting that album and he WAS a member 'of Boston', then techincally, Huckabee was accurate.I have evolved so much since the 70s that these songs just don't seem to apply to anything in my life, past or present.
The main riff is ripped from Creams' Badge - the start of the second section of the song, a part written by George Harrison I believe.
It reached #4 on the Canadian RPM Top Singles chart...
Was track one of side one of their debut album, 'Boston', the album peaked at #3 on Billboard's Top 200 Albums chart...
The Boston Church of Christ was the reason that Tom saw his "Mary Anne walking away". Though I'm not a big fan of pop music in ads, I will admit that they did a good job of editing in a panoramic zoom shot of a golf drive during the "slipped away..." sustained song is freakin' awesome! and even if they did steal a riff, c'mon it's not a hard thing to do when you're in the music industry. My band, Raised On Radio, started playing this and Peace of Mind the week after BD died, as a tribute. I don't actually know him personally because my family doesn't talk to that side.
If you listen to a lot of music, it's bound to happen once or twice. It has feeling, amazing guitars,and an even better vocal. Though since Delp's death, the lyrics to Hitch a Ride have really taken on a different tone - go give it another listen! But yes, Mary Ann is my Nana but doesn't like to tell people that it's about her because she is actually embarrassed (which i believe because it only took her my whole 17 years of living to tell me).
They include: 'Dreamboat Annie' by Heart, 'Rumours' by Fleetwood Mac, and Boston's 'Boston' album.
